I think you might need to push the DMI match into i2c-hid driver, and
bubble the quirks up here, otherwise if you connect a 2nd USB
touchscreen to such a system will also result in the quirk being applied
to it as far as I understand. In i2c-hid you can make a fine-grained
match on vendor/product and system to limit the quirk to hopefully the
right peripheral.
