ThinkPad L13 Gen2 has both touchpad and trackpoint.
PNP: LEN2146 PNP0f13
With the default protocol (elantech-smbus) trackpoint is not operating,
while touchpad does. Changing to elantech renders both operational.

Instead of downgrading the capabilities of the touchpad, couldn't we
fix the trackpoint issues?

I am surprised elantech doesn't work with the trackpoint, because I am
pretty sure I wrote patches in that regard. Which kernel version have
you been testing?

Cheers,
Benjamin

Yes, I consider fixing the issue would be better than downgrading
touchpad capabilities.
Blacklisting was the first and most obvious idea to test.

I'm eager to perform additional diagnostics to choose a better solution.
Your advice would be appreciated.

The patch was tested with 5.10.13 only, but the trackpoint behaviour is
the same on 5.4.92.
