Signoff for both architectures.
Note that some users will have one regression: the new kernel detects
Elantech touchpads as ETPS/2 synaptics-compatible touchpads, where the
old kernel would detect and emulate a Logitech IMPS/2 scrollmouse. Evdev
doesn't detect tapping anymore with this change. Installing the
synaptics driver and configuring it correctly brings back tapping. In
addition, this gives all types of extra features which weren't available
when the touchpad was detected as a logitech mouse.
