If you do filtering and calibration in kernel? What does tslib do? Why to keep 
it around? nostalgia?

The problem is claimed to be fixed for GTA02, right? Well, then clean up and 
streamline. Every software I have seen this with "we have punched it enough to 
work and will now punch something else" attitude is in a miserable state as 
things get messy and more messy and it is a one way street... The constant 
cleaning up in the Free Software world is making sure code remains 
maintainable... regarding touchscreen we are in the cleanup and streamline 
process... I have no idea where it will end but now is the time to reconsider 
things (including tslib)...


PS: I have done a lot to make a deadline, I have always fixed it properly 
afterwards... otherwise you will end up in a desperate situation...
