Don't forget ALPS. Which is handled by the synaptics driver but does NOT
work out of the box, as synaptics pads have an order of magnitude or two
better precision than ALPS pads, and it completely throws everything out
of whack. It doesn't just scale up the ALPS values to match synaptics so
that things Just Work. Nope. At least this was true last I looked at
it...

They're crap but they're common on lower end laptops.
