There's also the patches for the X server:


The 500 level patches are for the input related work. 500_xi2.1.patch is
a first approach implementation of XInput 2.1 that is in Natty right
now. It will not be used going forward, however, so I don't recommend
porting it to gentoo unless you want to be on the extremely bleeding
edge like us :). The other two patches are the ones necessary for uTouch
gesture support at this time.

Please note that in our next cycle of work we will be moving the uTouch
stack to the client side of X, meaning no patches against the X server
or any input modules will be needed going forward.
