Unfortunately currently trackpoint is being probed only after we tried
Elan, Genius, and Logitech PS2++ protocols, and I am not sure if moving
trackpoint around will disturb them or not.

I do not think there is much code duplication by pulling limited version
of trackpoint detection code into alps.c and then have it bail out when
it sees trackpoint-only device so trackpoint.c can handle it properly.

Thanks.
