Ok. Now userspace realizes that kernel alignemnt is off, and it would
want to scale it to 1..642. That will mean that single pixel will be
inaccessible, right?

You do a real world test on N900, and propose upgrade path.

I'm pretty sure you will not be able to push calibration into kernel.

It is actually same issue. One kernel interface should work for all
the touchscreens.
