So, once again I've tried applying Greg's trackpoint patch to -current...
And, once again, I'm having problem :-)
The first problem is that the line
vrpiu* at vrip? addr 0x0b000120 size 0x1a0 intr 5
is supposed to be commented out, but that line does't exist in the config
Instead, there's a line:
vrpiu* at vrc4173bcu? addr 0x0a0 size 0x20 addr2 0x0c0 size2 0x20 unit VRPIU # VRC4173 PIU
I went ahead and commented that line out instead.
I then added the line:
vrdsiu* at vrip? addr 0x0b0001a0 size 0x20 intr 21
I edited out the 'wsmouse* at vrpiu? mux0' line and added the
'wsmouse* at vrdsiu? mux0' as shown in Greg's instructions.
I also modified files.hpcmips as Greg outlines.
As soon as I go to run config, though, I get the following error:
../../../../arch/hpcmips/conf/files.hpcmips:425: undefined attribute `vrip'
Obviously something has changed with the vrip code somewhere along the
line... I just don't know what.
