Patch to libfprint-0.1.0-pre2

Description of problem:

UPEK Eikon II reader not supported in current version of libfprint.

Additional info:

Upek Eikon model TCRD4C4 (aka "Eikon II") fingerprint reader device not supported by upstream libfprint.  This Eikon II device is the fingerprint reader now being installed by Lenovo on recent T-series Thinkpads, among several others.

Jorge Suárez de Lis has written a patch (discussed in the libfprint mailing list).  A copy of the patch is attached.
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2010-08-17 14:22:13 EDT
That will not work, unless you do not compile the upeksonly device driver:
$ grep -r 0x2016 . | grep 0x147e
./drivers/upeksonly.c:	{ .vendor = 0x147e, .product = 0x2016 },
./eikonII.patch:+	{ .vendor = 0x147e, .product = 0x2016 },

As those use the same device ID.

Bug 504399 has updated patches, and some discussion on how to handle both drivers.
