SubjectRe: [PATCH] Input: alps - Demystify trackstick initialization for v3 and v6 protocols
Great, thank you. Enabling that RAW/extended/SP4 mode is done by
sequence E6, E6, E6, F3, C8, F3, 14 (written in page 35) and it matches
what function alps_trackstick_enter_extended_mode_v3_v6() in my patch is
doing. So is correct.

On page 36 I see that there is described Method 1 for reporting stick
data which prevents cursor jumps. Seems that kernel uses Method 2.
Method 1 depends on some prioritization.

Do you have some information how to activate Method 1? Sometimes I
observe that problem with "cursor jumps" and from Method 1 could prevent
it. So I would like to try experimenting...
