I'm not sure we have a specific VID/PID to work with here. The VID is
generic AFAIK, not sure about the PID though. Maybe someone from Wacom
could confirm either way.

I would say that touchscreen-inverted-x/y isn't a new API, it's
commonly used. To me it makes sense that it's supported for all
touchscreens.

That's a pain for me. I'm still stuck with the vendors userspace as I
need their propiritory eInk driver code. It also seems like a hassle
for different distros to handle this (compared to just in the DT).
