Subject[PATCH 1/7] Input: ALPS - Move protocol information to Documentation
Date
In preparation for new protocol support, move the protocol
information currently documented in alps.c to
Documentation/input/alps.txt, where it can be expanded without
cluttering up the driver.

+ALPS Touchpad Protocol
+----------------------
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+Currently the ALPS touchpad driver supports two protocol versions in use by
+ALPS touchpads, the "old" and "new" protocol versions. Fundamentally these
+differ only in the format of their event packets (in reality many features may
+be found on new protocol devices that aren't found on the old protocol
+devices, but these are handled transparently as feature differences rather
+than protocol differences).
+
+Detection
+---------
+
+All ALPS touchpads should respond to the "E6 report" command sequence:
+E8-E6-E6-E6-E9. An ALPS touchpad should respond with either 00-00-0A or
+00-00-64.
+
+If the E6 report is successful, the touchpad model is identified using the "E7
+report" sequence: E8-E7-E7-E7-E9. The response is the model signature and is
+matched against known models in the alps_model_data_array.
+
+Packet Format
+-------------
+
+In the following tables, the following notation us used.
+
+ CAPITALS = stick, miniscules = touchpad
+
+?'s can have different meanings on different models, such as wheel rotation,
+extra buttons, stick buttons on a dualpoint, etc.
+
+PS/2 packet format
+------------------
+
+ byte 0: 0 0 YSGN XSGN 1 M R L
+ byte 1: X7 X6 X5 X4 X3 X2 X1 X0
+ byte 2: Y7 Y6 Y5 Y4 Y3 Y2 Y1 Y0
+
+Note that the device never signals overflow condition.

+ALPS Absolute Mode - Old Format
