Be really careful then! We have to synchronize uploads when the shared
memory segment layout of the driver changes.

Oh, wait. Gsynaptics already includes a different (much older) version
of struct SynapticsSHM. It won't work with the current synaptics driver
available in etch.
I tested 0.9.5 here that destroyed my runtime configuration :)
Probably taking synaptics.h from the driver sources and stripping the
unnecessary definitions (the non public part, see comments) is enough.
BTW: I'll soon upload a new revision recommending [gk]synaptics.
