Thanks, it's working great!
I updated the LIS302DL and WM8753FL footprints to use the new solder
mask layer, I also defined a constant in the footprint by which the
solder mask is reduced on each side because kicad will still expand the
solder mask when generating the Gerber files. Right now it's set to
3mil, so we might need to change this later according to the value which
is set in the kicad preferences.
