Bug reference:
    Cypress trackpad: Disable tap-to-click doesn't affect mouse button zones.


This patch to the new Cypress PS/2 Trackpad driver fixes trackpad
misbehavior when the user opts to disable tap-to-click.


To test (requires a Cypress PS/2 Trackpad):
1. Disable tap-to-click in Mouse and Touchpad settings.
2. Tap the touchpad (do not click the physical button) in various
   places.  Notice that when touching the zones above the physical
   buttons, tap-to-click single clicks are still generated (but
   not when touching higher up on the pad).
3. Test same with patch applied: observe no extraneous tap-to-click
   events when that feature has been disabled; tap-to-click works
   as usual when left enabled.

[Regression Potential] 

None known.  This patch affects only the Cypress PS/2 Trackpad driver.
