Can you? What do you want to average here? Multiple sequential measurements?
This makes the touch slower and hence imprecise and unuseable in another way.
Anyways, the tsc2007 chip can already do such averaging.

You have not yet said how you think it is degraded *more* than in your

As written before, the really proper solution would be to provide floating
or fixed point subpixel input events. Not arbitrarily scaling up in kernel
and leaving downscaling to user space (where everybody can make it worse).

But I don't think it is worth implementing subpixel touch events for real
world devices due to the jitter I mentioned.
