Thanks for the heads up.  Indeed the new kernel-devel
from the git commit was available before my kernel
build on the XO-1 completed.  I was able to install
the rpm, point the linuxwacom configure to the
correct path and the driver built.

I've loaded wacom.ko successfully and can move the
mouse with the pen.  Now on to fixing the XInput
configuration issues.

Thanks again,
