It's a compile-time option for the pms driver to include code that
handles Synaptics Touchpads.

There is:

defflag opt_pms.h                       PMS_SYNAPTICS_TOUCHPAD
defflag opt_pms.h                       PMS_ELANTECH_TOUCHPAD
defflag opt_pms.h                       PMS_ALPS_TOUCHPAD


file    dev/pckbport/synaptics.c        pms & pms_synaptics_touchpad
file    dev/pckbport/elantech.c         pms & pms_elantech_touchpad
file    dev/pckbport/alps.c             pms & pms_alps_touchpad

in the included files.pckbport config file. The upper case defflags
are used as lower case condition names to optionally include source

opt_pms.h is created by the config program and includes definitions
for the flags that are enabled by the option statement. E.g.

#ifdef _LOCORE

C code can just use the macro PMS_SYNAPTICS_TOUCHPAD, assembler code
can evaluate the global symbol _KERNEL_OPT_PMS_SYNAPTICS_TOUCHPAD.
