| Not sure what you mean here.  /dev/input/event1 already reports
| ABS_PRESSURE of 0 or 1, and as far as I can tell those are the only
| levels that the device reports.

The patch I mention gives more range of pressure indication, based on
size of contact to touchscreen.  When I changed the report range to
0-100, it broke touchscreen in X, that's all I know.  So if we can adapt
that at the same time it would suit us all in the future.

| It means that the EVIOCGRAB usage in tslib
|    tslib-input_raw-grab_events.patch
| is currently not needed.  Who do I ask to get that patch removed?
| Once it is removed it should be safe to remove
| from the kernel.

I can take care of that but this needs the coordination I see it is
getting from Mickey's interest now, so I wait and see how that side goes.
