[HEADS UP] MacBooks and Apple Trackpads

A new driver for the Apple Trackpad named "wsp" has been committed and 
MFC'ed to 9-stable and 10-stable from -current.

The trackpad will appear non-working in X.org until HAL is recompiled 
with support for "wsp" devices. This happens when I MFC "etc/usb.conf" 
to 9-stable and 10-stable which then automatically loads the "wsp" 
kernel module when "devd" is started. This has not yet been done.

As an alternative workaround:

rm /boot/kernel/wsp.ko
kldunload wsp

Thank you for the attention!
