i8042 input regression
Last modified: 2011-07-18 22:52:28 UTC
I performed all testing to figure out this regression, and it's all related to the patch.... 0b28bac5aef7bd1ab213723df031e61db9ff151a ... this prevents the i8042 module from being built and used, however a lot of recent devices still use this form of input.
I attached various config files and other things to verify the results... also, in the include attachment is the simple patch required to remove the problems with keyboard input along with various system logs to show what is happening.
also, on a quick note, the testing is against the latest linus tree with commit:
