Ok, I did some real tests:
in qpe.env
export QWS_MOUSE_PROTO="tslib:/dev/input/touchscreen"

starts a calibration screen (not needed of course) if /etc/pointercal
does not exist
and gives a working touchscreen

export QWS_MOUSE_PROTO=linuxinput:/dev/input/touchscreen
does not work, the touchscreen evdev is not listed in /proc/<pid of

export QWS_MOUSE_PROTO=linuxtp:/dev/input/touchscreen
opens a touchscreen and also a calibration screen if /etc/pointercal
does not exist. It registers touching the screen. If
I understand the code correctly, it opens pre-evdev-style touchscreen
devices and does not understand what it gets from the evdev.

PS: compiling this night without tslib support
