There are actually 2 reasons ksynaptics doesn't work:
1. SHMConfig in the synaptics driver is disabled by default, for security
reasons.
2. (Once you enable it by writing a custom HAL FDI file, you run into this
one.) The synaptics driver in F10 is too new for ksynaptics to handle.
KSynaptics needs to be updated to support the new API revision.
