Thanks for testing these patches.

My patches are based on v3.18rc2. I tested my patches on am335x-evm
using tslib.
If you are encountering false pen-ups, charge-delay parameter needs to
be tuned to your board. In some custom setups charge-delay of 0xB000
provided better performance.
If you are using ts_test (from tslib) for testing try
# ts_test > /dev/null
for better performance.

Please explain "touch is broken"? What is the behaviour of TSC?
Which ADC channels are being used for TSC?
