+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1186108 +++
Description of problem:
The Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd touchpad has physical buttons again for the trackstick (like the touchpads before the *40 series). Alas, those buttons are wired up to the touchpad device and are interpreted as scroll buttons by the synaptics driver.
Patches finally showed up in a branch of the input maintainer's tree:
If the tests are going well, they will be scheduled for 4.0.
Patch(es) available on kernel-3.10.0-233.el7
Changing the summary to reflect that the bug affects also other laptops from the same series.
Fixed typo in the updated summary.
