Middle button doesn't work on several Thinkpad laptops like E570, E475, E470, E575 and X1Carbon.

When middle button fails to work, logs show:
psmouse serio2: trackpoint: failed to get extended button data

It fails to read out ext button info via PS2 command.
Almost all the Thinkpad have 3 buttons, so set it to 3 button when it fails to read button info.

Fix it by setting default button info to 3 when failed to detect it.

[Test Case]
Middle button of trackpoint works fine.

[Regression Potential]
Very low.
This patch set the button value to 0x33 after failure of detection.

  Input: trackpoint - assume 3 buttons when buttons detection fails
