** Description changed:

  I have an Elantech Touchpad installed on my Lenovo Y700 laptop and I
  can't make it work properly by any means. I tried to switch between
  libinput and synaptics but this bug seems to affect any driver.
  Usually, after a system upgrade all works properly till the moment I
  plug in external mouse (Razer DeathAdder 3500DPI). After that touchpad
  detected as either PS/2 BYD or PS/2 generic mouse or sometimes PS/2
  Elantech touchpad.
  After some 5-6 reboots without plugging in external mouse the touchpad
  finally starts to detect it as ETPS/2 Elantech touchpad.
  Reloading psmouse module seems to cause no effect (or it does yet after
  a minute touchpad stops working for a moment and then switches to PS/2
  in xinput). Multitouch stops working as well as tapping with two
  I tried almost all the possible workarounds involving adding boot
  options, installing elantech driver fixes etc.
  Help is appreciated.
  The output of xinput as for now:
  $ xinput
  ⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
  ⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                      id=4    [slave  pointer 
  ⎜   ↳ PS/2 BYD TouchPad                               id=14   [slave  pointer

  Seems that forcing the psmouse to detect the touchpad as elantech helps
  to fix problem temporarily. But it works only from time to time:
  $ sudo rmmod psmouse
  $ sudo modprobe psmouse force="elantech"
