Just out of interest, would wstablet also encompass touchscreen support?

Is there any other place that it is used by userland that would cause
incompatibilities than ioctl(WSMUXIO_INJECTEVENT)?  If its just that, its
not so difficult to version the ioctl so that old and new code works
fine with a new field added..

#define WSMUXIO_INJECTEVENT_OLD _IOW('W', 96, struct wscons_event_old)
#define WSMUXIO_INJECTEVENT     _IOW('W', 96, struct wscons_event)

        struct wscons_event ev;

        switch(cmd) {
                memset(&ev, 0, sizeof(ev));
                /* fall through */
                copyin(data, &ev, IOCPARM_LEN(cmd));
