I did write something very similar to this and in fact I think that this
button_read_device() function we're modifying is only executed when a
key is actually pushed. So the "RESET filter" part is never executed in

The resetting should be done at a higher level. I think to somewhere in
/firmware/drivers/button.c. But I would like to know more on the
functions inside this file : button_tick(), button_read(). When is this
button_tick() function used ? How work these event_queue and
button_queue struct ?

I'm wondering if the button-x5.c file is the one to change !
