What I was trying to say is that it is expected that ABS_PRESSURE values
grow the harder you press on the screen, and reduce back to 0 when
finger is about to be removed from the surface. Here, it seems, we have
the opposite case, where resistance decreases the harder you press and
increases up to some maximum value when you remove the finger.

IOW, I think you want to report:

input_report_abs(bu21029->in_dev, ABS_PRESSURE,
bu21029->max_pressure - rz);

Thanks.
