Ah, OK, I thought that evdev was used in both cases. In the log file,
one has config/udev lines such as:

(II) config/udev: Adding input device AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad (/dev/input/event10)

but it is not said what driver is used.

I don't have the trace of what I did and tested, but I had in the
past on this machine (before I tried evdev):

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "AlwaysCore"
        Option          "Protocol"      "auto-dev"
        Option          "MaxTapTime"    "0"
        Option          "SHMConfig"     "true"
        Option          "EmulateMidButtonTime"  "0"

But I don't remember why I switched the config to evdev (just that
mid button emulation could no longer be disabled, and I tried to
find information on the web).
