On new Dell Inspiron 15 5576, the touchpad stops working a few seconds after
reaching the display

mouse and don't touch the
touchpad, it will work. Once I use the touchpad, it lasts about 3 seconds and
then stops working.

I found this message in the journalctl, and the fault time exactly corresponds
with when the
touchpad stopped working:

So I added something to the bug report, and would be interested to know if anyone here has any comments (since I assume not everyone here is reviewing the bug reports as much as this list):

I found this out also. If I run this command, here is what I get:
# modprobe -r psmouse ; modprobe psmouse
modprobe: FATAL: Module psmouse is builtin.

So, looking further, I found this:
tribeDellbig:/lib/modules/4.11.5-1.g8ffa6bb-default # cat modules.builtin | grep mouse
kernel/drivers/input/mousedev.ko
kernel/drivers/input/mouse/psmouse.ko

When I go to that directory, here is what I find:
# ls -g -o /lib/modules/4.11.5-1.g8ffa6bb-default/kernel/drivers/input/mouse

The psmouse.ko file does not exist. So how can it be built in to the kernel if it doesn't exist?
