Nope. And I am also interested in this since I am sittign on a bunch of
accelerometers, magnetometers, etc drivers that are trying to plug into
input sysbsystem and quite unsure what to do with them.

It was OK whch HDAPS and friends when they were using input for
secondary, toyish purposes, but these new drivers trying to use input
devnts as primary API and I am unsure if it is the best solution.
Accelerometer might be used as an input device but not always an input
