Yes, the original source 
(https://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-input-libinput/) will 
build unmodified.

I've copied libinput_drv.so to 
/usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/input/libinput_drv.so and installed 
"99-libinput.conf" into /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d so that X will 
use libinput for the /dev/input/event* devices by default and not 
xf86-input-evdev or -synaptics.

Libinput has pretty advanced multitouch scrolling and gesture support 
that relies on evdev multitouch packets 
Are you already sending these packets, or are you sending relative 
(EV_REL) packets? Looking at the wmt driver in the wulf7/evdev branch 
sending EV_ABS packets does not seem too hard for USB based touchpads.

It is probably easiest to boot Linux, dump all evdev packets from the 
touchpad with the libevdev-events tool from libevdev, and then try to 
emulate that output with the wsp driver.

For testing smooth scrolling, gtk3-demo is pretty good; or recent 
versions of Firefox with the MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 environment variable set to 1.
