N900 is mainline and uses DT.

X work ok on N900. Nikolaus wrote rather long email, but I'm not what
the meaning is and what is supposed to be broken there.

I do this on X startup:

xinput --set-prop --type=float "TSC200X touchscreen" "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 1.10 0.00 -0.05 0.00 1.18 -0.10 0.00 0.00 1.00
xinput --set-prop --type=int "TSC200X touchscreen" "Evdev Axis Inversion" 0 1
xinput --set-prop --type=float "TSC2005 touchscreen" "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 1\
.10 0.00 -0.05 0.00 1.18 -0.10 0.00 0.00 1.00
xinput --set-prop --type=int "TSC2005 touchscreen" "Evdev Axis Inversion" 0 1

And I agree that kernel should _not_ attempt rescaling itself, as it
would lose precision. Providing default calibration info is ok.
