OK, sorting it all out some more:

- because we do not have support for F21 necessary for forcepads adding
APIC ID to forcepad list actuallty disables SMbus companion mode, that
is why you no longer see "companion not ready" messages vs. setting
psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 module parameter.

- this does not really matter as your touchpad ends up being driven by
i2c-hid and hid-multitouch drivers, and that is how we wait it to
work, as we do not want to deviate from behavior on Windows since OEM
tested it (the device and firmware) in tha configuration.

- we need to figure out issue with interrupts on resume, maybe Benjamin
have seen it?

Thanks.
