I have a touchscreen device that works on 2.6.14 but breaks on 2.6.16.

The kernel is detecting the device and it is registering in
/proc/bus/input/devices but not showing up in /dev/input


input: eGalax Inc. USB TouchController as /class/input/input0
usbcore: registered new driver touchkitusb
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
ts: Compaq touchscreen protocol output

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0eef Product=0001 Version=0100
N: Name="eGalax Inc. USB TouchController"
P: Phys=/input0
S: Sysfs=/class/input/input0
H: Handlers=mouse0 event0 ts0
B: EV=b
B: KEY=400 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
B: ABS=3
