Bug Description

[Impact]
Support to ALPS PTP Stick and Touchpad devices found on latest Dell Latitude systems.

[Fix]
This fix in two parts:
1. Requires cherry-pick of patch submitted by ALPS in upstream kernel 4.13
See: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?h=v4.13-rc6&id=504c932c7c47a6b4c572302a13873f7d83af1ff3

2. Additional sauce patch adds the device-id of the new PTP stick. This
patch is already submitted to linux-input and is pending review.
See: http://marc.info/?l=linux-input&m=150235885218076&w=2

[Test Case]
Verified on the systems affected with this issue and confirmed that this solution works.

[Regression Potential]
The patch adds new device ids to hid multi-touch driver. With strict conditional filtering based on these device-ids, regression potential is minimal.

This bug is used for tracking purposes, please do not triage.
