Input: elantech - add v3 hardware support
v3 hardware's packet format is almost identical to v2 (one/three finger touch), except when sensing two finger touch, the hardware sends 12 bytes of data.

+6.2 Native absolute mode 6 byte packet format
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+1 and 3 finger touch shares the same 6-byte packet format, except that
+3 finger touch only reports the position of the center of all three fingers.
+
+Firmware would send 12 bytes of data for 2 finger touch.
+
+Note on debounce:
+In case the box has unstable power supply or other electricity issues, or
+when number of finger changes, F/W would send "debounce packet" to inform
+driver that the hardware is in debounce status.
+The debouce packet has the following signature:
+ byte 0: 0xc4
+ byte 1: 0xff
+ byte 2: 0xff
+ byte 3: 0x02
+ byte 4: 0xff
+ byte 5: 0xff
+When we encounter this kind of packet, we just ignore it.

+6.2.2 Two finger touch
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+The packet format is exactly the same for two finger touch, except the hardware
+sends two 6 byte packets. The first packet contains data for the first finger,
+the second packet has data for the second finger. So for two finger touch a
+total of 12 bytes are sent.
