Bring features of xinput list-props to libinput-list-devices

Hello everyone,

I have just made a simple patch to libinput-list-devices.

The latter brings back a feature available in xinput when used in
combination with Xorg drivers instead of libinput.

- The maximum number of finger detected
- Reports if 3 fingers are detected

Just a few question though. In

xinput list-props "CyPS/2 Cypress Trackpad"
	Coordinate Transformation Matrix (140): 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000,
0.000000, 1.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
        libinput Scroll Methods Available (286):        1, 1, 0

what are the Coordinate Transformation Matrix about?

I assume "libinput Scroll Methods Available" bits are respectively for
two fingers, three fingers and four fingers scrolling detection right?

Also as I added the constant LIBINPUT_CONFIG_SCROLL_3FG, I had to adapt
the code which was using LIBINPUT_CONFIG_SCROLL_*2*FG. I dont know if my
changes are correct. Mr Hutterer, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for your answers.
