Subject[PATCH 7/16] Limit Synaptics rate on Toshiba Satellites
Date

===================================================================

ChangeSet@1.1957.1.34, 2004-11-12 01:31:15-05:00, dtor_core@ameritech.net
Input: synaptics - use DMI to detect Toshiba Satellite notebooks
and automatically reduce touchpad reporting rate to 40 pps
as they have trouble handling high rate (80 pps).
