Subject: [PATCH 1/1] Elantech touchpad detection fix for laptops

Hello Folks,

[Thanks for Dmitry for pointing out my error in previous attempts at
sending this email. I've fixed it now. Sorry if you've received this
email multiple times by now.]

Months ago, I raised kernel bugzilla 81331
(https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81331) for Linux not
detecting my Elantech touchpad from a cold boot. As can be seen in
that bug report, besides myself, it's indeed affecting a number of
other users.

Since then, based on the original patch fix given by Mateusz Jonczyk,
I've extended it to be this (which not only fixes my problem, but
others as well) & would appreciate your review (and inputs thereof) &
if you're happy with it, then request you to kindly merge it upstream
on mainline & stable.

On behalf of all affected users, much appreciate your help in this
matter. Thank you.

PS: If gmail somehow spoils this patch when it comes through, then
please refer to the above kernel bugzilla URL, where the same patch is
available as a file attachment.
