appletouch regression

It seems that the appletouch driver is (sporadically) not detecting my
Apple Trackpad anymore on Linus' current tree (2.6.27-05577-g0cfd810).
When it is misbehaving, it doesn't have any /dev/input/event* entry
that corresponds to the input from appletouch, and dmesg -should- show
the following, as does, but does not:

appletouch: Geyser mode initialized.
input: appletouch as /class/input/input4
usbcore: registered new interface driver appletouch
appletouch: 17" model detected

On the current tree, occasionally all I get is:

usbcore: registered new interface driver appletouch

It's unfortunately a touchy issue, as it only -occasionally- happens.
A bisection will be a pain in the butt, but I'm starting it right now
