    Subject[PATCH 0/7] Additional ALPS touchpad protocol support
    This patch series adds support for two ALPS touchpad protocol versions
    currently unsupported by the driver, which I've arbitrarily called
    versions 3 and 4 (with the two currently supported protocol versions
    changed to be called versions 1 and 2). The v3 touchpads are commonly
    found on Dell laptops, and the v4 touchpads are found on machines from a
    variety of other manufacturers.

    Both the v3 and v4 touchpads are capable of low-resolution semi-MT
    support, but this series only includes support for semi-MT on v3. The v4
    protocol has a quirky format, with each data packet containing a full
    set of high-resolution ST coordinates and 1/3 of a set of MT data. Thus
    we receive 3 ST coordinates for every set of MT coordinates, and we can
    only determine the number of contacts every third packet as well. I
    haven't spent much time trying to work out the best way to handle this
    yet; suggestions are appreciated.

    Patches 1-4 are preparatory patches. Patch 5 adds ST support for the v3
    and v4 protocols, and patch 6 adds semi-MT support for the v3 protocol.
    Patch 7 documents both protocols.

    These patches have been through numerous rounds of user testing with
    various laptop models and are working well at this point.

    Special thanks to Andy Skalski, who made my job much easier by doing
    much of the grunt work to reverse-engineer the v3 protocol.
