Bug#652678: linux-image-3.1.0-1-amd64: psmouse fails to autodetect Elan touchpad
thanks for your information; I didn't even look at the code of the patch. After having read your email, I've installed 3.2.0-rc7 from experimental. As you assumed, it correctly identifies my Elan touchpad and the synaptics driver also works as expected. Please close the issue.
