Great to see this upstream. The patch obviously has a lot in common with
the previous keyboard and touchpad drivers; foremost this is a change of
transport protocol and not functionality. That said, the code is compact
and clear enough to make it hard to motivate any major effort to share
more of existing code, at least initially. Barring detailed comments
that are likely to produce new revisions, this looks like really good work.
