Jumping cursor on touchpad release

A jumping cursor when releasing the finger makes it impossible to hit small objects. Solved with synclient(1) FingerHigh/Low:

$ synclient FingerHigh=40
$ synclient FingerLow=40


Brightness control

Brightness can only be switched between darkest and brightest values using OS method. The fix is to make the thinkpad-acpi kernel module control it: append thinkpad-acpi.brightness_enable=1 acpi.brightness_switch_enabled=0 to the kernel line in the bootloader.

USB 2.0 not working or giving kernel traces

Not sure if this was solved by using acpi_backlight=vendor or by blacklisting these modules I do not use:

blacklist joydev
blacklist pcspkr
blacklist iTCO_vendor_support
blacklist iTCO_wdt

blacklist thinkpad_acpi # it not used by this model and gives warnings about unknown events to the logfiles when loaded.
