I'm installing Gentoo on a new Dell XPS 13 (9333). I've had a few speed bumps, but so far been able to resolve them all except this one: the touch pad doesn't work at all.

I've found lots of information about other people having issues with the touch pad, but they don't seem to be the issue I'm having (they're either issues having it work at all, or having it stop working after a kernel upgrade due to blacklisting the i2c_hid module to get it working with previous kernels).

I've mostly convinced myself it's a kernel issue (rather than an X11 one), since synclient, xinput, and cat /proc/bus/input/devices don't seem to show any evidence the device exists at all. The touch pad works fine in Windows, and plugging in an external mouse also works fine in my new Gentoo setup.

I'm completely stumped. I'll happily provide more detailed diagnostic information if people can let me know what's useful.
