full dmesg output
I have a Tong Fang GK5CN5 laptop, branded as a PC Specialist Recoil II.
The device has an integrated touchpad, which, according to my reading is an i2c hid device.
There was a problem that closely matched the symptoms of bug #199911, but it turns out that although the patch included there gets rid of some of my errors, the touchpad is still not showing up as a device.
I'm still running the patch from that bug because I'm pretty sure it's solving a problem that I have.
I'm not sure where to look next, but there are some errors that may be of interest:
If I press the physical button that enables the touchpad, after disabling it, I see this in dmesg:
[ 254.890450] i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.4: BIOS is accessing SMBus registers
[ 254.890459] i801_smbus 0000:00:1f.4: Driver SMBus register access inhibited
I am also seeing these errors from i2c_hid:
