Tested on my Acer E3-112 with a TouchPad.

It works, thank you!

I have been missing two-finger scrolling, it was quite awkward using edge
scrolling IMHO.

It does feel like it sometimes gets stuck in scrolling mode. When trying
to move the pointer just after having scrolled, it scrolls even using just
one finger.

Three-finger tapping also works. (Generating a button 3 event)

"Clicking" on the pad (pushing it down until it "clicks" sends button
events for both button 1 and 2. (Which is seems to sometimes be
interpreted as button 3...)

The biggest improvement though; before it would get totally crazy at
random intervals with the pointer moving all over the screen and clicking
at random points. Quite annoying... This patch seems to have eliminated

Also, does it support horizontal scrolling?
