To answer with a quote from the comment above input.h:"struct

* Note that input core does not clamp reported values to the
* [minimum, maximum] limits, such task is left to userspace.

to do so, use this from input.h:

#define EVIOCGABS(abs) _IOR('E', 0x40 + (abs), struct input_absinfo) /* get abs value/limits */
#define EVIOCSABS(abs) _IOW('E', 0xc0 + (abs), struct input_absinfo) /* set abs value/limits */
