Action Item #299
Add touchscreen driver to kernel build
|Status:||In Progress||Start date:||22 Mar 2014|
|Category:||03 - Linux Kernel|
|Target version:||2.0 - Harkonnen|
|Severity:||03 - Medium|
According to this information, the ADS7846 driver is needed in order to support the touchscreen interface on the HY28A display. This needs to be enabled in the kernel to be able to utilize the touchscreen interface on the texy display (see RM#240).

This repo is designed to be built out-of-kernel. It requires work to make it into a real driver tree.
What I may be able to do is modify the Makefile and add a Kconfig file for just the ads7846_device, which is all that's missing for touchscreen support. There are other drivers in there but they aren't required.

- ads7846_device (from fbtft_tools)
ads7846 was not configured in the kernel.
ads7846_device is currently being built by the kernel-build-drivers target.
evdev was already enabled as a module in the kernel.
xinput was not enabled as an X.org driver module in Buildroot.
Updating both configs and rebuilding. S90UI will be updated to make sure these are all loaded when the fbtft driver is loaded.
