Bug Description

=== SRU Justification ===
Touchpad on Precision M5530 uses PS/2 instead of I2C as its transport.

[Test Case]
The touchpad binds to psmouse instead of i2c_hid.
With the patch, the touchpad uses i2c_hid instead.

LKML Link: https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/1/30/963
The de facto standard, Windows, parse its DSDT as a term list. The DSDT
table on Precision M5530 also designed that way, hence we should just
respect that.
Add a new quirk for this specific machine.
I'll backport the patch for stable releases once it's upstreamed.

[Regression Potential]
Low. This fix is limited to XPS 15 9570/Precision M5530. Also it's the
"correct" way to do for this machine.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
