I am really uncomfortable at us chipping away all validations in
trackpont protocol. The newer trackpoints (Elan, ALPS, etc) will be
taken care of with my patch that will not even try to fetch extended
button data for 0x02 - 0x04 extended ID devices, but unless we have a
concrete example of 0x01 responding with 0 for button info I will not
apply this patch.
