Subject[PATCH] Input: Lenovo S10-3t's touchpad support
This is for kernel bug #18122 and MeeGo bug #4807.

Current code detects Clickpad by checking the 8 and 20 bits of 0x0c
cap. However, the code returns true if either of those bits is 1,
while it should only return true when both are 1. This has lead to the
touchpad on Lenovo S10-3t be mistakenly recognized as Clickpad and its
BTN_LEFT and BTN_RIGHT blocked.

So far we've found that the S10-3ts are shipped with two slightly
different models of touchpads, of which the 0x0c cap is either
0x5a0400 or 0x4a0500. They are not Clickpad and return BTN_LEFT and
BTN_RIGHT normally.

This patch fixed this issue by checking both sign bits are 1. Tested
on my S10-3t and worked well.
