BTW, yet another kernel patch is missing; the support of embedded LED.
I've posted this once, but it seems forgotten since then. Reposted
below.

Subject: [PATCH 2/2] input: Add LED support to Synaptics device
The new Synaptics devices have an LED on the top-left corner.
This patch adds a new LED class device to control it. It's created
dynamically upon synaptics device probing.

The LED is controlled via the command 0x0a with parameters 0x88 or 0x10.
This seems only on/off control although other value might be accepted.

The detection of the LED isn't clear yet. It should have been the new
capability bits that indicate the presence, but on real machines, it
doesn't fit. So, for the time being, the driver checks the product id
in the ext capability bits and assumes that LED exists on the known
devices.
