Hi folks.

A new version for the trackpoint driver "tp4utils"
has been released.


The main features of the new version are:

 - renamed options to better match the real meaning
   of configurable parameters/settings as defined by
   Updated manpage and xtp4 parameter description strings
   to reflect these changes.=20

 - tp4d now is able to read the active settings on startup.
   Only changes explicitely requested by command line options
   are performed (at startup).

NOTE: Because the command line options have changed, existing
   scripts must=1Bbe upgraded! This is easy, however, thanks to
   the new feature 2):

   - start tp4d using script
   - uninstall old version (kills old tp4d)
   - install new version (_before_ suspending or rebooting)
   - start new tp4d (it will read active configuration from hw)
   - kill tp4d or use xtp4 to read settings and copy them
     into an existing script...
