Subject[PATCH] Input: synaptics add manual min/max quirk
Date
The new Lenovo Haswell series (-40's) contains a new Synaptics touchpad.
However, these new Synaptics devices report bad axis ranges.
Under Windows, it is not a problem because the Windows driver uses RMI4
over SMBus to talk to the device. Under Linux, we are using the PS/2
fallback interface and it occurs the reported ranges are wrong.

Of course, it would be too easy to have only one range for the whole
series, each touchpad seems to be calibrated in a different way.

We can not use SMBus to get the actual range because I suspect the firmware
will switch into the SMBus mode and stop talking through PS/2 (this is the
case for hybrid HID over I2C / PS/2 Synaptics touchpads).

So as a temporary solution (until RMI4 land into upstream), start a new
list of quirks with the min/max manually set.

Hi Dmitry,

Well, this work is part of a (big) attempt to support the new touchpads
Lenovo put in its latest series.
Those new laptops have lost the buttons associated to the trackstick and are
what we call "clickpad".
Things would be easy if:
1. the PS/2 firmware did not lied about the actual range of the axis
2. on some install (mine) the DMI matching in udev would not have been broken
3. we did not have to fix a lot of stuff in Xorg / libinput / wayland

This patch fixes 1.

Matthew Garrett fixed 2. -> https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/3704401/

3. is heavily working as shown by this tracker bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73158

I put the 'stable' marker, feel free to remove it if you don't think it should
be there, but I really think this should also be backported to have something
working in current distros.

Cheers,
Benjamin
