You can try to adapt current linux goodix driver for the new one. Current driver is for GDIX1001 and gdix9xx, so maybe it doesn't require big changes

One needs to change source code of the driver and recompile it

I would start from changing gdix1001 to gdix1002 in source code or adding new alias in it, compiling changed driver and checking what kernel reports.
