That has no advantages, and floating point in kernel is hard. Also
you'd either have to invent new interface, or you'd break touchscreen
for people that already have their touchscreens calibrated. Just
pass calibration data to userland.

Yes, that's not really proper solution, that just overengineered. Not
worth implementing. Pass calibration data to userland.
