< belgin> GNUtoo: i found some firmware embedded in the smdk4412 vendor kernel which gets loaded for synaptics touch buttons from what i can tell
< belgin> drivers/input/touchscreen/synaptics_fw.h
< belgin> the n5100 and n5110 (codename kona) uses it
< belgin> i will check if removing it will make the buttons stop working
