I just tested this patch set on the Ux500 with a TVK UI board.

I added this:

i2c@80110000 {
synaptics@4b {
/* Synaptics RMI4 TM1217 touchscreen */
compatible = "syna,rmi-i2c";
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;
reg = <0x4b>;
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&synaptics_tvk_mode>;
interrupt-parent = <&gpio2>;
interrupts = <20 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>;

rmi-f01@1 {
reg = <0x1>;
syna,nosleep = <1>;
rmi-f11@11 {
reg = <0x11>;
syna,f11-flip-x = <1>;
syna,sensor-type = <1>;

[ 2.143127] rmi_f01 sensor00.fn01: found RMI device, manufacturer:
Synaptics, product: TM1217
[ 2.155242] input: Synaptics RMI4 Touch Sensor as
[ 2.165466] rmi_i2c 3-004b: registered rmi i2c driver at 0x4b.

Doing cat /dev/input/event2 gives noise on screen, yay.

Some quick questions I see immediately:

- The DT examples in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/input/*
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;
for the I2C device children (i.e. the function nodes), it needs to look
like my example above to work.

- All things boolean like syna,nosleep and syna,f11-flip-x
should just be like:
in the device tree. Use of_property_read_bool() for these.

- syna,sensor-name = "FOO";
The bootlog clearly states that f01 can autodetect the sensor
type. And f01 is always compiled in, right? So just cut this
binding and handling, if the two don't match it's just

- /proc/interrupts say this:
206: 114 0 nmk2-64-95 20 Edge sensor00
sensor00? Unhelpful. Why can't it say "TM1217", give take
an instance number, with the detected sensor name?

But to me the code seems overall pretty mature. It just works.
I'll be happy to give a more detailed review if you post it.
