Bug references:
	Cypress trackpad gets psmouse lost sync / driver resynced warnings

	Cypress trackpad: Occasional taps leak through as clicks even with tap-to-click disabled


This patch fixes a couple of issues with the new Cypress PS/2 Trackpad driver.
One issue is that the trackpad loses synchronization upon palm contact, and
the other is that, even with tap-to-click disabled, occasional taps get
interpreted as clicks.


1. Disable tap-to-click in Mouse and Touchpad settings.
2. tail -f /var/log/kern.log
3. Touch palm to trackpad. Notice lost sync/resync messages.
4. Remove palm. Notice no more lost sync/resync messages.
5. Repeatedly tap (don't depress clickpad) on the bottom edge/corners
   of the trackpad. Notice the occasional click.
6. Test 3-5 with patch applied. Notice no more lost sync/resync
   messages upon palm contact, and no more occasional taps turning
   into clicks.

[Regression Potential]

None known. This patch affects only the Cypress PS/2 Trackpad driver.
