Yeah, my laptop had the same issue and I worked around it by using
this gross hack (for 9.x, but, should apply to 10.x):

That got my touchscreen working with the `ws' Xorg driver. Pretty sure
this isn't the *right* way to do it, but, I didn't have the time to
wade through the USB specs. & NetBSD kernel docs. for the correct
solution. :)



PS. Happy to run commands/test patches/etc. if someone more
