From: Lingfeng Yang <lfy@google.com>

Register Goldfish Events device properly as a multitouch device, and
send SYN_REPORT events in appropriate cases only.

If SYN_REPORT event is sent on every single multitouch event, it
breaks the multitouch support. The multitouch interaction becomes
janky and user has to click 2-3 times to do stuff (also, notification
bars are randomly activating when not clicking). If these SYN_REPORT
events are suppressed, like it is done after this patch iss applied,
multitouch works fine, plus the events have a protocol that looks
nice.

In addition, Goldfish Events device needs to be registered as a
multitouch device by issuing input_mt_init_slots. Otherwise, function
input_handle_abs_event in drivers/input/input.c will silently drop all
ABS_MT_SLOT events, causing touches with more than one finger not to
work properly.
