Dmitry, friendly ping on this one.Add support for Universal Stylus Interface (USI) style events to the HIDDmitry, could you please Ack the MSC_PEN_* additions?
input layers. The events are mapped as follows:
type id event
---- -- -----
MSC(4) 6 Pen ID
MSC(4) 7 Pen Color
MSC(4) 8 Pen Line Style Ink
MSC(4) 9 Pen Line Style Pencil
MSC(4) 0xa Pen Line Style Highlighter
MSC(4) 0xb Pen Line Style Chisel Marker
MSC(4) 0xc Pen Line Style Brush
MSC(4) 0xd Pen No Preferred Line Style
ABS(3) 0x1c Pen Line Width
All the listed MSC events are new, the ABS one is mapped to an existing
We need good descriptions of what exactly these events are, and when and
how userspace should expect/use them.
In general, I am wary of MISC_* namespace as it needs to be sent in
every packet as we do not retain state and do not give userspace way of
querying it, unlike ABS_* or KEY_* or number of other events.
Also, what do we do with multiple pens used at once? Maybe we do not
have such devices now, but multitouch devices did not exist in the
beginning either, and now are ubiquitous.
