DualShock4 Controller

Nothing more to do for this controller, it pairs over Pairing Controllers over Bluetooth with no issues. On modern kernels this now does support motion events as well as the touchpad, treating the touchpad as a pair of axes reading the last location of a single touch. See the last part of Standard Names for details on how to access these properties.
