Additional notes to #211:

Actually rebooting your machine is not necessary for simply testing the module. You can remove the old kernel first,

$ sudo rmmod i2c-hid

and then insert the new module with the parameter "polling_mode=1"
$ sudo insmod i2c-hid.ko polling_mode=1

For have persistent effect, you need to add i2c-hid.polling_mode=1 to the kernel boot parameters to make the
touchpad work after installing this new i2c-hid module following the instructions in #211.
