- Subject: [PATCH 4.9 05/63] Input: restore EV_ABS ABS_RESERVED
4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
[ Upstream commit c201e3808e0e4be9b98d192802085a9f491bd80c ]
ABS_RESERVED was added in d9ca1c990a7 and accidentally removed as part of
ffe0e7cf290f5c9 when the high-resolution scrolling code was removed.
