HP500 notebook synaptics touchpad not recognized and fix



On my HP500 notebook the synaptics touchpad is not recognized by neither FC6 nor FC7t1. The error is:

PNP: PS/2 Controller [PNP0303:C1A4,PNP0f13:C1A5] at 0x60,0x64 irq 1,12
Failed to disable AUX port, but continuing anyway... Is this a SiS?
If AUX port is really absent please use the 'i8042.noaux' option.

After some googleing around I've found that the PNP PS/2 detection routine in drivers/input/serio/i8042.c from the kernel tree is responsible of this. I've found a hint on a Gentoo forum, made a kernel patch [patch attached] and build a custom kernel, which fixed my touchpad issue.

I'm new in the "RedHat Bugzilla land" and I'm not a kernel hacker nor an C/C++ developer, hence my question:
Should I bugzilla this?
