That's great, I'll backport the driver to our release as soon as it gets
in the mainline repo

  Need Alps upstream their new touchpad driver

Status in HWE Next:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Some newer Alps touchpad isn't supported by current kernel therefore
  recognized as PS/2 mouse  and lost some key functions.

  From debug message we saw:
  alps_rpt_cmd: psmouse serio1: alps: E6 report: 00 00 64
  alps_rpt_cmd: psmouse serio1: alps: E7 report: 73 03 28
  alps_rpt_cmd: psmouse serio1: alps: EC report: 73 01 13
  alps_identify: psmouse serio1: alps: Likely not an ALPS touchpad: E7=73 03 28, EC=73 01 13

  which is different with some Alps bugs reported before.

  Though we've already got drivers from Alps but it's not yet
  upstreamed, this bug is opened for tracking this issue.
