Default tablet waltop, linuxwacom 0.8.4-9 patch for waltop

I want this patch included in the package.

It works with the tablet, WALTOP International Corp. Slim Tablet, two
pen buttons are errored currently (both work like mouse middle click
?button 3?), but pressure and button 1 at pen tip work.

The patch is one line to include the WALTOP vendor id, written
generically at

Another AUR package has this patch but the package failed to get the
controllers from linuxwacom. awx was maintainer.

I think other users may like the convenience of this patch included for
their tablet.

I wrote the patch for the current package linuxwacom 0.8.4-9. It is
attached, to include it in the PKGBUILD add something like,
