Default Bug#618006: Input support for MacBookPro8,*

Source: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-30
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Hi,

The attached commit, taken from Dmitry Torokhov's input tree, adds
input support for the MacBookPro8,* released in March 2011.

Ideally the patch should be applied to both 2.6.32 in Squeeze and
2.6.37/2.6.38 in Sid. It may need some backporting work for 2.6.32 for
the trackpad part, not sure about that, shouldn't be anything major,
though.

Thanks,

JB.

I don't think we can do this because:

Unless you can provide a known good patch, I'm going to have to tag this
- patch + wontfix. Sorry.

Ben.
