First RC for synaptics 1.5. I don't want any big changes in now but let me
know of any crashers that need to be fixed immediately.

We've got a whole set of patches queued up for master that I don't want to
merge in this cycle - especially given that 1.4 has been out for quite a
while now. So here it is, the current state of synaptics that hasn't changed
much for a while anyway.

Many of the changes are cleanups in the driver, man pages and other changes
that mostly help developers, not users. The next version (synaptics 1.6)
should address more user issues.
