Title:
  Wacom touchscreens should disable gestures

Bug description:
  [Impact]

  From the original bug:

  "The result is that on my Yoga 920, in a plain X11 session (running
  openbox in my case), the touchscreen acts like a broken mouse: there
  is no multi-touch capability in Qt Quick applications, and clicking
  isn't quite right either."

  [Test case]

  Install the update, note that the touchscreen behaviour is better.

  [Regression potential]

  From the upstream commit:

  "Note that this change will effectively cause a feature regression for
  users of other environments that do *not* have their own gesture
  engines (Cinnamon, KDE, MATE, XFCE, etc.). Users will want to add an
  xorg.conf.d snippet with `Option "Gesture" "on"` to bring back the
  functionality."

  but at least I (tjaalton) haven't heard of any complaints since we've
  disabled gestures in focal (Nov 21st), so the warning might be a bit
  too pessimistic about the impact.

  /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/70-wacom.conf as shipped, has this:

  Section "InputClass"
          Identifier "Wacom touchscreen class"
          MatchProduct "Wacom|WACOM|PTK-540WL|ISD-V4"
          MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
          MatchIsTouchscreen "true"
          Driver "wacom"
  EndSection

  The result is that on my Yoga 920, in a plain X11 session (running
  openbox in my case), the touchscreen acts like a broken mouse: there
  is no multi-touch capability in Qt Quick applications, and clicking
  isn't quite right either.  I also verified it with Peter Hutterer's
  old cairo-based mt-touch test program.

  I suspect we will get some users mistakenly writing up Qt bugs about
  this if you don't ship a fix.  (Seems to me that already happened at
  least once, actually.)

  Yes, the touchscreen is made by Wacom, but wacom_drv.so has
  historically been only for Wacom tablets and in-screen stylus
  digitizers, and IMO that continues to be the case.  libinput is a much
  better choice of driver for this hardware (so is evdev for that
  matter), so I changed it to Driver "libinput" and got it working.
  (Wayland uses libinput, so in a wayland session, touch already works
  fine in Qt apps on this hardware.)

  I'm one of the Qt Quick maintainers, most concerned with touch
  handling, and I've also written some of the Qt xcb code for dealing
  with XInput touch and tablet devices.  So if you think that there's
  something wrong with Qt, such that it should still work anyway to use
  a wacom driver for a Wacom touchscreen, let me know.  These AES
  devices are still new to me (that's why I got a Yoga, to try it out).
