I can help with that: Kernel 3.17 enables my laptop's (Lenovo Flex 14)
touchpad to be recognised while 3.16 doesn't. This is an ALPS v7
device, which got added by way of this commit
/?id=3808843cf10e4a696d942359d99822eff1a2de8e and so missed 3.16.x
series. With 13.2, therefore, my touchpad does not work (it is
recognised as PS/2 mouse and that is even worse!), but I upgraded to
3.17.1 from Kernel:Stable and it works now. This is not an exotic
device either: most recent Lenovo laptops in the Yoga and Flex series
come with this or a synaptic touchpad whose support also only got
added to Kernel 3.17.
IMHO we should clearly distinguish between maintenance and bugfixes on
one side and features and HW enablement on the other.
