This patch is from me and part of the SUSE packages since I wrote my diploma
thesis about Tablet PCs under linux for SUSE (2005-08-11). I also tried some
time ago to get the stuff into HAL but read the list archive for more.

;-) no comment
Btw. the hardcoded ttyS2 is from a report of a user, that the HP Compaq tc4200
needed to be setup under this address, but this is maybe no longer needed -
unfortunately I don't have this machine available for testing. I would let
this in until someone report a problem.
And yes we could move the fdi-file to hal-info. I didn't changed this because
for the SUSE package we could live with it.
