Subject: [PATCH] mouse button 1 emulation for mac_hid

(this is a resent with all the people included in the CC that git
         blame'd they are the authors).

Dear all,

I am not sure what the future of mac_hid is (the source says will be
removed, but since 9 years). In case it stays in kernel the attached
patch adds support for mouse button 1 emulation. If this driver stays in
the kernel I would also suggest to rename it - it is not mac specific (I
am using this on a netbook).

Rationale? Broken touchpads, within linux unsupported (multi-)touchpads
where click and hold + moving the mouse does not work (yet?).

I am using this for over a week now with about that uptime - so it
should be safe.

For the one fact about the future of which we can be certain is that it
will be utterly fantastic. -- Arthur C. Clarke, 1962
