    SubjectThree buttons reported on two-button touchpad
    Kernel 2.6.31.x

    Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1, fw: 6.3, id: 0x1c0b1, caps: 0xa04751/0x0

    but /proc/bus/input/devices:

    I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
    N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
    P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0
    S: Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input15
    U: Uniq=
    H: Handlers=mouse1 event2
    B: EV=b
    B: KEY=420 70000 0 0 0 0
    B: ABS=11000003

    So even when capabilities clear say only 2 buttons, driver claims there
    are 3 of them.

    The reason most likely is initialization sequence.
    psmouse_switch_protocol() unconditionally sets supported buttons:

    input_dev->evbit[0] = BIT_MASK(EV_KEY) | BIT_MASK(EV_REL);
    input_dev->keybit[BIT_WORD(BTN_MOUSE)] = BIT_MASK(BTN_LEFT) |
    input_dev->relbit[0] = BIT_MASK(REL_X) | BIT_MASK(REL_Y);

    before even starting hardware detection and knowing real capabilities.
    Detection for specific hardware won't change it (possibly only extend).

    Is it OK to move button bits setting into ps2bare_detect()? This seems
    to agree with comments in psmouse_extensions() as well:

    * Okay, all failed, we have a standard mouse here. The number of the
    * is still a question, though. We assume 3.

    All other detection routines seem to be setting those bits already.
