The tslib driver in Debian has a calibration bug[1] that can be worked
around by using the linked pointercal file. By now (well, sometime last
week), we have added a fixed version to the pkg-fso repository, now the
original pointercal (pointercal-fso) works.

Judging from your version number at +fso2_armel.deb
you based your changes on our fixed version, so I’m surprised that
people have to use the work-around-pointercal file.
