Subject[PATCH] input: Fix stuck buttons on some Alps touchpads
From: Martin Buck <mb-tmp-yvahk-vachg@gromit.dyndns.org>

Enable button release event redirection to the device that got the button
press not only for touchpads with interleaved protocols, but unconditionally
for all Alps touchpads. This is required at least for the touchpad in a Dell
Inspiron 8200, because it sometimes sends the release event for the touchpad
buttons in such a way that it looks like a release event for the trackpoint
buttons (which didn't matter so far because everything ended up in one
device anyway, but it broke when support for sending button events to 2
different devices for touchpad and trackpoint was added in commit
d7ed5d883c09c5474f842dcb148515dfaef2a567).

Another option would have been to add an additional #define just for the
Dell Inspiron 8200 touchpad that enables the redirection only when it is set
(and of course in case of ALPS_PS2_INTERLEAVED as it's done at the moment).
But I fail to see why enabling it unconditionally could cause problems for
anybody, so this is what my patch does. If somebody sees a problem with
this, I'll happily rewrite the patch to do the redirection only when it
knows that it's required for a specific model.
