We have support in v3.9-rc1 for even more ALPS touchpads. This brings
in support for a multitude of Dell machines that we have. In testing,
this enables mouse configuration, horizontal and vertical edge
scrolling, and the disable touchpad hotkey. None of these work with
the default PS/2 Generic Mouse driver.

We've opened bug 1089413 for this specific patchset. A related bug
606238 is marked as affecting 331 people, mostly with Dell machines.

We have tested the following platforms

Dell Latitude 5530
Dell Latitude 5430
Dell Precision M4700

In addition to the testing that has been done upstream

Dell E6410 (Pinnacle AGx) - E7/EC: 73 02 64 / 88 07 9d
Dell E6230 (Rushmore without trackstick) - E7/EC: 73 03 0a / 88 08 1d
Dell E6430 (Rushmore with trackstick) - E7/EC: 73 03 0a / 88 08 1d
