3.11.10.1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joseph Salisbury <joseph.salisbury@canonical.com>

commit 5df682b297f6b23ec35615ed7bb50cbb25d25869 upstream.

If hardware (or firmware) detects palm on the surface of the device it does
not mean that the data packet is bad from the protocol standpoint. Instead
of reporting PSMOUSE_BAD_DATA in this case simply threat it as if nothing
touches the surface.
