Bug Description

We need to cherry-pick 9a54cf462d6f3c383a5a4f5fe15c020a03db44e6 for alps touchpads. Otherwise the touchpad will stop working when we put more than 3 fingers on the pad.

Please consider SRU this commit.

Impact:
  Alps driver doesn't work when users put more than 3 fingers on it.

Fix:
  Alps touchpad still works good after multitouch for more than 3 fingers.

Tested:
  The patch is tested on new Dell Inspiron laptops and works very good.

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 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!
