Yes, it would be great to get rid of it. The driver does have the
ability to download configuration via the firmware loader interface. So
you would be able to grab a copy of the config by saving it with
mxt-app, tweak it to ensure that the T9 CTRL byte is set correctly, then
ship it somehow (presumably it could be added to linux-firmware). This
would override what's currently stored in NVRAM on all those units and
mean we could remove the T9_CTRL stuff.

I'm happy to talk you through sorting that out in more detail if you
want to give it a go. I don't have any Pixel 1 hardware available at the
moment, unfortunately.
