Re: [PATCH v3] Input: Elan HID-I2C device driver

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Tom,

I read Microsoft's things about HID over I2C few days ago. And from
what I understood, the report descriptors and the enumeration of the
devices are stored in the ACPI table and not in the device itself. Can
you confirm this?

I was thinking about making hid-multitouch independent from the usb
stack and was thinking about doing the i2c-hid bridge. However, I did
not start writing a line yet ;-)

Cheers,
Benjamin
