A friend has a DELL Inspiron 1525 with an ALPS GlidePoint touchpad. We
have added hw.psm.synaptics_support=1 in his /boot/loader.conf but it
still detected as a standard ps2 mouse.

Looking at sys/dev/atkbdc/psm.c :
 461         { MOUSE_MODEL_GLIDEPOINT,       /* ALPS GlidePoint */
 462           0xc0, MOUSE_PS2_PACKETSIZE, enable_aglide },

I'm guessing if his touchpad has 0xc0 as model, how can I check this?

For the moment there is this in his dmesg:

psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0


psm0: [ITHREAD]

psm0: model GlidePoint, device ID 0
