 I'm just curious. Where did you get this info from and how could a 
 user know these things when they break? Maybe it's in a wiki somewhere 
 there's a arch kernel changelog?

 As for myself I spent one day looking for a solution and found it in
 ksynaptics (in AUR - this should really get in official repos ;) ).
