Actually, if the touchpad doesn't want to be set to the multitouch mode,
we might as well take your v2 of your patch in addition to this series.
This should hopefully make the caps lock LED happy and at least enable
the mouse collection. If someone wants to debug why the device doesn't
want to switch to mt, I'd be happy to help/review patches, but I think
we might as well take the easiest path :)
So Andy, if you still have the energy for this:
please apply this series and yours
And report if this is sufficient enough.
