Looking at the code again, you can already do that in userspace by
seeing the difference between BTN_TOUCH (tap) and BTN_LEFT (button).

I haven't been able to come up with a proper patch, whenever I don't
send any touch events to userspace I don't even get a mouse movement any

IOW -- a patch that completely disables the touchpad is easy, but one
that simply ignores tap events doesn't seem to be possible for some
strange reason.
