This is the first RC for synaptics 1.7.6 and includes all the backports
needed to support the Lenovo *40 series (including Yoga, Helix, 2ng gen
Carbon X1). These are the touchpads that provide no physical buttons for the
trackstick but instead expect the touchpad driver to software-emulate those

Note that autodetection of these touchpads depends on the
INPUT_PROP_TOPBUTTONPAD property to be set in the kernel [1].
And since all of these touchpads have a broken PS/2 firmware, you need a set
of quirks [2].

Without the property, use Option "HasSecondarySoftButtons" to enable/disable
that feature. More info here:

Aside from those, the backports include improved clickfinger3 detection,
fixed acceleration defaults on a few mac models, and a unicorn.
