Thanx for maintaining the driver.
AFAIK kernel input driver does not exist, and this is one of last resort to make one enjoy wonders of X.

ad. testing - i still use much older version , which works fine, except pointer goes crazy under heavy load sometimes. it seems that it's serial port is polled, and machines have issues with acpi timer sources, which in combination makes bit of disaster. either way it's useable on fujitsu stylistic 2300 i happen to own.

btw. recently i've thought of standarising such old devices by hardware hacking , i.e. to insert 'standariser' device inbetween computer and problem device like some once-released-never-maintained tablet, mouse, etc. such device would be simple transcoding microcontroller. ofc. for devices like tablets or laptops this is still not really applicable, as it's difficult to hack something like this inside...

one of problems with such thing though is that there are not really 'standard' devices , i.e. each of them is related to some vendor , and any of them is not de facto 'standard'.

greetings and thanx for good work

This driver is one of the legacy input drivers that you almost certainly
don't want to use. Use the kernel driver instead (if one exists) or write
one (if none exists). This release brings the usual input ABI updates,
cleanups, etc. and one real bugfix.

1.4.0 has actually seen testing in the form of loading the module, enjoying
a view of a non-crashing X server (-retro too, I'm soo 80s today...) and
thus deducting that the driver is bug-free. Which is more testing than
previous releases have seen.  Nonetheless, you may not want to control your
nuclear power plants with this driver.
