A simple patch to improve touchscreen responsiveness by disabling kalman filter on Inoi R7

This works only on Inoi R7. Jolla tablet and Jolla 1 don't use kalman filter.

For Jolla C/AquaFish version go to https://openrepos.net/content/toxip/disable-kalman-filter-jolla-caquafish

Caution!

This tampers with a critical file droid-hal-device.conf. If something goes wrong the device might not boot. There should be no risk in using the patch but I make no guarantees. Should the device fail to boot, restore droid-hal-device.conf under /var/lib/environment/compositor to its original state in recovery mode.

Use at your own risk!

Failed to install patch when I try to apply. Any suggestions?

Can you please tell me your Sailfish OS version and post the file contents under /var/lib/environment/compositor/ here so I can fix the patch. Thank you!

Works smoothly. After one day of testing I can say that the swipe lags are completely gone now.
