I have not seen a working kernel since 2.6.31.5 for my laptops. However, the
2.6.33-rc6 and later work fine, so I don't have to run in single user mode. All
of the recent Fedora kernels lose the touchpad.

I'm still waiting months later for
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=550719
to even be assigned, so don't have a lot of hope that a bug that don't hit
developer's machines are going to get much attention unless it hits a lot of
people. Very hard to debug without the effected hardware, and great hope that
the user or hardware will die and stop complaining. Or switch to a distribution
which works.
