OK, so I see this patch:
http://people.canonical.com/~sforshee/lp681904/linux-3.0.0-8.10~lp681904v201108052055/0001-Input-elantech-Add-v3-hardware-support.patch
which looks like something that could go upstream. But it hasn't, or at
least it's not visible in linux-next.

That patch will not be going upstream. Elantech has submitted more
comprehensive updates to the driver that were developed in parallel (see
https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/8/29/63 for the most recent revision).

We are carrying an updated version of the above patch temporarily until
Elantech's solution makes it upstream. In practice that probably means
we'll use my patch for Ubuntu 11.10 and switch to Elantech's solution in
12.04. The advantage to the patch we're carrying now versus Elantech's
is that it doesn't functionally modify the v1 or v2 touchpad support,
and thus shouldn't carry any risk of regression for those devices. I've
attached a copy of the updated patch.

Cheers,
Seth

Thanks, but I think we'll wait for the official version.
