Hi Dmitry,

Thanks for the quick response. Yes I was just looking at the other
mailing lists patchwork and while comments were missing on the
linux-input list for the v4 patch, there was a discussion on the
regular kernel mailing list:
https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/455450/#630445

It looks like you told him he didn't need to submit a v5 but generated
one based on the changes suggested in the discussion:

If the version I sent to you works then you do not need to prepare v5,
I'll just apply what I have.

Thanks!

So I guess Dan's original question remains, should this be fixed
considering it's so old and apparently nobody could possibly be using
it in the kernel since it doesn't work (in which case the driver
should probably be dropped) or should we fix it?

Thanks,
Ken Sloat
