That commit does also gets INPUT_PROP_BUTTONPAD set for my touchpad.
I'll leave it up to the two of you to decide whether or not there's
benefit in also using the usage to set the property bit. I'll also
follow up with a v3 patch which resolves the conflicts with Benjamin's

Also, I should probably mention that I don't have any non-depressible
touchpads which set the button type usage that I can test with. If
anyone has such hardware it would be great to get this tested against
