Description of problem:
When in a Wayland session disabling the touchpad also disables the trackpoint. Only when enabling the touchpad in gnome-settings (in Xorg) and returning to Wayland session the trackpoint works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. disable touchpad in Xorg
2. try to use trackpoint in Wayland
3. trackpoint does not work
The trackpoint should work regardless of the touchpad settings. In Xorg this is the behaviour, in Wayland the touchpad and trackpoint are locked together.
This is on a Dell Latitude 7480
Sorry about the late answer, my email filters were messed up and dropped F28 emails. I see you've moved this to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106109 now, let's continue it there.
Let's reopen this, it was a kernel issue after all.

Patch that fixes the issue.
I'll submit it in a few minutes.
Is the fix in for kernel 4.20?
Upstream commit 7dd8db68949a7acc5bd528ee0ecb8f8720f49921, and git says
$ git tag --contains 7dd8db68949a7acc5bd528ee0ecb8f8720f49921
So let's assume this one is in 4.20 and close this bug :)
Yes indeed, the fix is in 4.20. Thank you for fixing this issue, bug can be closed.
