AFAICT, this one is the Lenovo P53.
However, having a whitelist of new models is not going to scale IMO.

I was thinking at submitting a patch to enable middle button
unconditionally, but then I realized that libinput disables middle
click emulation on touchpads with an actual physical middle button.

And this morning I just realized that we might have a better chance at
this if we consider the new models to have the physical middle button.
I know LEN0407 attempts to bind over SMBus, so I would think we can
reduce the set of whitelist by just checking for
ETP_NEW_IC_SMBUS_HOST_NOTIFY (patch coming in).

Cheers,
Benjamin
