$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/99-touchpads-are-touchscreens.rules
ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="_end"

This turns your touchpad into a touchscreen, should be good enough for
testing. Afterwards, reboot or run

    sudo udevadm test /sys/class/input/event17
    sudo udevadm test /sys/class/input/event17/device

with your event node. Note that you need both the event node and the parent
input device to avoid both flags being set.
