​Great! Will check it out.

​Kernel evdev implementation seems to work great. It is fairly easy to add
evdev functionality to existing drivers. I just patched the wsp (for
Macbook's touchpad) driver to add it to evdev. I modified it a bit to add
two finger x-y scroll like on macOS. I can't wait to try it on X so I'm
gonna try get libinput working with X today.

​I couldn't get it working with your udev-stubs and I found libudev-devd
which seemed to be more mature. It works great so far!​

​Where can I find xf86-input-libinput for FreeBSD? Will the original source
