patch that reverts the hp pavilion support

Description Julius Bullinger 2010-05-01 16:23:54 UTC
Since 2.6.34-rc5, I'm no longer able to scroll using my touchpad on an Acer Aspire One 532h. It worked with 2.6.34-rc4, and it still works with the 2010-04-19 snapshot of 2.6.34-997 from the drm-intel-next branch (via Ubuntu's mainline repository). This happens on Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64.

Could you try booting with the "i8042.debug" option an post your dmesg?

Great.  Thanks for the information, that really helps.

Here is the email I sent to linux-input.  I added you to the CC list as well.

Subject: Re: [Bug 15893] Alps: No edge-scrolling since 2.6.34-rc5 

It looks like the "Acer Aspire One 532h" and the "HP Pavilion dm3" have the same signature but they behave differently.

As a result commit 5e28d8eb68 "Input: ALPS - add signature for HP Pavilion dm3 laptops" fixes things for dm3 but breaks the Acer Aspire One 532h which was working (with a userspace driver maybe??).

Here is the relevant "i8042.debug" output from bz 15893:

drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: d4 -> i8042 (command) [535]
drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: e9 -> i8042 (parameter) [535]
drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: fa <- i8042 (interrupt, 1, 12) [535]
drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 73 <- i8042 (interrupt, 1, 12) [536]
drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 02 <- i8042 (interrupt, 1, 12) [536]
drivers/input/serio/i8042.c: 64 <- i8042 (interrupt, 1, 12) [536]

What's the right way to handle this?

patch that reverts the hp pavilion support

The HP support was already reverted in the linux-input devel tree for unrelated reasons.

Felix, I've attached a patch for you until the official patch gets pushed to Linus's tree.  We'll close this bug when it get's fixed in mainline.

The offending patch has been reverted from mainline, closing.

I can confirm that scrolling works again in 2.6.34-rc7. Thank you!
