Hi Henrik, Kamal,

Thanks for your review.
And I add some comments in below.

Thanks.

Since all trackpad specific commands are sent as extension command,
the format of extension command series is "0xE8 dd 0xE8 cc 0xE8 bb 0xE8".
And as we know, it may fail when sending the extension command series,
So this comment just want to indicates that if some unknown error occurred when sending the extension command,
this code will send recovery command to make trackpad firmware go back to ready state,
so same command can be tried to be re-sent.
Sorry for the bad comments causing confusion.

I think relative-mode code should be reserved,
since for some unknown reason, trackpad may failed in absolution mode,
and in order to make trackpad device kept on usable,
we may set it to relative-mode,
so in this situation, the relative-mode code should be exist.

Yes, this condition should be reserved.
Because ABS_HSCROLL_BIT is will reused to indicate finger numbers when finger number is bigger than 3.
And when the contact_cnt is 4, the ABS_HSCROLL_BIT is set to indicate 4 fingers touched, not HSCROLL BIT set.
But it will be confused with the flag of HSCROLL bit with one finger touched.
So we must clear this bit when contact_cnt is 4.
