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

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

From: Ondrej Zary <li...@rainbow-software.org>

commit 04bb1719c4de94700056241d4c0fe3c1413f5aff upstream.

The touch sensor buttons on Sony VAIO VGN-CS series laptops (e.g.
VGN-CS31S) are a separate PS/2 device. As the MUX is disabled for all
VAIO machines by the nomux blacklist, the data from touch sensor
buttons and touchpad are combined. The protocol used by the buttons is
probably similar to the touchpad protocol (both are Synaptics) so both
devices get enabled. The controller combines the data, creating a mess
which results in random button clicks, touchpad stopping working and
lost sync error messages:
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 4
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: issuing reconnect request

Add a new i8042_dmi_forcemux_table whitelist with VGN-CS.
With MUX enabled, touch sensor buttons are detected as separate device
(and left disabled as there's currently no driver), fixing all touchpad
problems.
