It is large enough for us to start worrying about how we manage
memory, not to mention throughput. Since we do not really have devices
of that type yet, how about adding a MT_MAX_MAXCONTACT next to
MT_DEFAULT_MAXCONTACT, and use it as a sanity check, like so:

if (!td->maxcontacts && field->logical_maximum <= MT_MAX_MAXCONTACT)
td->maxcontacts = field->logical_maximum;

Then the default (10) would be picked for the suspect devices, just as
it is today.
