I have filed a bug report kern/57446 against the problem. Your patch
worked fine. On the amd64 system the touch screen attached correctly
and appears to work perfectly. In fact the only downside is that the
usb mouse seems to work a bit slower. I suspect a minor tweak to the x
config will fix this. I am quite impressed as to how well the touch
screen performs...

On the RPI system the touch screen attaches OK and X sees a wsmouse,
however I cannot seem to select windows on the desktop or move the
cursor. I don't have a keyboard attached (so using a serial console)
which makes testing a bit more difficult. Hopefully I will soon get an
adaptor to hook the touch screen to a usb hub so I can do more testing.
