 Per the discussion in #10417 we have found that enabling the synaptics
 Absolute mode and using the userspace driver is not what we want, due to
 the change of behaviour where it floods us with a constant stream of
 packets (even if the EC could cope, this is undesirable for us). Also, we
 use kbdshim anyway now, so no Xorg conf changes or Xorg userspace driver
 would be needed. We have also got the synaptics kernel driver upstream
 into a state where we can disable tap-to-click.
