while scrolling through the list I came upon:

tslib relies on ts pressures events so this hack is needed to get tslib stuff 
lindi: s3c specific. hack? I personally can live with evdev if this really 
only affects tslib.
Paul: hm, worth investigating more: is not returning pressure at all a valid 
thing to do for a TS driver?

As I'm currently also working on a touchscreen driver I came upon a lot of 
discussion and documentation about the handling of pressure values.

In the end a driver should not use the pressure property at all if it can't 
provide meaningfull pressure data (i.e. more than 0 and 1) and tslib should be 
"long fixed", if one does not use an ancient version.
