That's expected. Right now we just present all sensors, regardless if
they are installed or not, i.e. also the TEPT4400 ambient light sensor
is shown, which is only installed in Letux 3704 devices. Sensor
Readout/libsensors always accesses the first registered accel if accel
data is needed, which leads to BMA180 button presenting the LIS302
data in your case.

> 3) I do not understand you patch:
>> -       # Sensors
>> +       # Sensors #TODO: beware of unstable path names, lis302 or bma180 might not be installed on all devices, which leads to different names
>>         chmod 666 /sys/class/input/input1/poll #bma150
>> +       chmod 666 /sys/class/input/input5/poll #lis302
>> +       write /sys/class/input/input5/poll 0 #disable lis302 as it disturbs the bma180

This patch is relevant only for devices which have bma180 and lis302
(I found out that I actually have such a configuration). If both
accels had a sampling rate >0 the bma180 data was very distorted, so I
disabled lis302 (but only if both are installed), if only one of them
is available the input nodes will be different, and thus the lis302
will not be disabled => it's working for you (lis302 only) and for
bma180 only devices.
