Your later message complains, I think, that hpc_tpcalib is a bad name
for something that doesn't really have anything to do with calibration
anymore.  I agree with that, but sharing the code till seems good. 
Consider the proposal modifed to now call that hpc_tpanel, with a
hpc_tpanel_ioctl() function.

Well, besides being hpcfb-specific, it's fb-specific. That's not going
to work on i386 except with uwscons, I suppose. Even then, you really
need to calibrate in the same display mode you'll be using it in.

That would only be useful for using the touchpanel with curses apps or
the like, I think.
