Issue 21: configure for TSC2007

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Feb 19, 2010

TSC2007 support must be enabled
and we must specify the bus&address of our device.

Maybe, we also have to flip the Y coordinate which starts (0,0) at 
the lower left corner.

The good thing is that vanilla Linux already has a driver for the 
TSC2007! drivers/input/touchscreen/tsc2007.c Just needs to be 
configured into the kernel :)

But: the I2C and the TSC driver needs to be initialized in the 
board.c file. There may be examples to copy from other platforms, 
e.g. the Touchbook.

As far as I understand it needs two changes:
a) initialize the I2C bus
b) initialize the TSC (tsc2007_init)

Finally, I don't know yet how to activate the TSC in user-space 
(e.g. connect it to the X server).

It looks as if only this device uses the TSC2007:


It looks quite simple (just needs to connect the PENIRQ GPIO - 
GPIO157 on our GTA04E-Board).

Still open to me is how we configure this to be in the I2C Bus 2.

--- CODE ---

/* TouchScreen */
#define IRQ0 32
static int ts_get_pendown_state(void)
	int val = 0;
	gpio_request(GPIO_PTZ0, NULL);

	val = gpio_get_value(GPIO_PTZ0);

	gpio_request(GPIO_FN_INTC_IRQ0, NULL);

	return val ? 0 : 1;

static int ts_init(void)
	gpio_request(GPIO_FN_INTC_IRQ0, NULL);
	return 0;

struct tsc2007_platform_data tsc2007_info = {
	.model			= 2007,
	.x_plate_ohms		= 180,
	.get_pendown_state	= ts_get_pendown_state,
	.init_platform_hw	= ts_init,

static struct i2c_board_info ts_i2c_clients = {
	I2C_BOARD_INFO("tsc2007", 0x48),
	.type		= "tsc2007",
	.platform_data	= &tsc2007_info,
	.irq		= IRQ0,

Another quirk: if the TSC driver is to be compiled into the kernel 
(and not as a loadable module), compilation aborts:

GPIOs and Interrupt connection is fixed. Driver is initializing and 
shows /sys/devices/virtual/input/input0
but there is no event0 file

TSC driver is now working. Only issue is that Y axis is flipped and 
touch screen calibration does not handle (at least in Angstrom).
