2018-08-13 08:15:36 Anthony Wong description Touchpad of Yoda2 doesn't work well via PS/2 mode, most time the data is lost sync via PS/2. I have made a patch in upstream/Ubuntu 4.15/4.13 kernels to force touchpad using SMBus mode. SMBus mode requires i2c-i801 kernel module which is in modprobe blacklist in Ubuntu 18.04/16.04. User has to remove i2c-i801 manually. i2c-i801 in blacklist is a very old workaround to fix HP compaq nc6000 (Bug #10306), this module should be removed from blacklist.

There is also another bug (Bug #1475945) that needs this module for Acer trackpad to work. SRU justification ============ [Impact] Many modern notebooks need i2c-i801 kernel module to function, but it is blacklisted by /etc/modprobe/blacklist.conf, which gives a very poor user experience. [Test case] 1. Install Ubuntu 2. Check touchpad works or not 3. Install the fixed kmod package 4. Confirm touchpad works [Regression Potential] i2c-i801 was blacklisted due to bug 16602. The user complains an HP Compaq nc6000 notebook cannot suspend without blacklisting i2c-i801. While this is a way to workaround the suspend issue, the proper fix should be in linux kernel. Since nc6000 was a machine sold in 2004, it is too difficult to find someone to verify if it will regress due to this SRU. The rationale to blacklist it is: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hotplug/+bug/16602/comments/5, however it is no longer valid nowadays on modern computers. Besides, there look like to be a quirk in linux kernel that fixes it: https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blame/master/drivers/pci/quirks.c#L1434 [Other Info] rationale of i2c_i801 driver blacklist: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kmod/+question/269329 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Original bug report: We have a Lenovo Thinkpad machine that requires i2c-i801 kernel module to work, but it is listed in /etc/modprobe/blacklist.conf in Ubuntu.
