Subject: RE: [PATCH] Support TrackStick of Thinkpad L570

Hi, Domitry,

I think we can add the code to HID for this device, but we will not use SMBus interface for Touchpad in the future.
We should not do it.

Best Regards,
Masaki Ota

Is it custom protocol over SMBus/I2C or HID (via i2c-hid)? If it is custom protocol, can we add the proper driver to the kernel for it so we can get away from the PS/2 emulation in firmware?

Thanks!
