HARDWARE --
Dmitry Torokhov has submitted the input feature updates for the Linux 4.11 kernel merge window.

One of the new input drivers for Linux 4.11 is the Zeitech touchscreen controller. The new Zeitech driver is zet6223 and supports the ZET6223 I2C touchscreen controller.

Another new driver is for Samsung "touchkeys." The Samsung Touchkey support is the new tm2-touchkey driver and allows for touch key and LED functionality on the Exynos 5433 TM2 development board.

Meanwhile, the Moorestown platform driver was dropped (as the platform support was removed) and a MPU3050 accelerometer driver was also dropped (in favor of an IIO driver).

There are also other bug-fixes and clean-ups. More details via the input pull request.
