I recently switched my Dell Inspiron 2600 laptop, running -current,
from APM to ACPI to have some AC adapter and battery support ... But i
noticed that the Synaptics touchpad support in pms(4) driver does not
work anymore.

The custom kernel (CALAMITY) includes the GENERIC_LAPTOP and add a few
more things (auich modem, ichlpcib and ACPI core/devices).

pckbc0 at acpi0 (PNP0303): kbd port
pckbc0: io 0x60,0x64 irq 1
pckbc1 at acpi0 (PNP0F13): aux port
pckbc1: irq 12
pms0 at pckbc0 (aux slot)
pms0: synaptics_probe: Not synaptics.
pckbc0: using irq 12 for aux slot

pckbc0 at isa0 port 0x60-0x64
pckbd0 at pckbc0 (kbd slot)
pckbc0: using irq 1 for kbd slot
pms0 at pckbc0 (aux slot)
pms0: Synaptics touchpad version 5.9
pms0: Palm detect, Multi-finger
pckbc0: using irq 12 for aux slot

Anyone else seeing this ?

Thanks in advance,
