Thank you, now it is (almost) good as you said :D

Probably a trivial problem for experienced kernel hacker but I can not
wrap my head around this - the interrupt handler takes the mpr121
device id as an argument while the poller poll_fn takes struct input_dev.

I fail to figure out how to get the device id from the input device.

Here is what I have:
