Thinkpad X1 Tablet (gen 2)

Using a standard stage3 installation everything should pretty much work out of the box.

Keyboard

for some reason on kernels >= 4.2 the keyboard, trackpoint and touchpad are not working on the first boot. To work around this problem add i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset to your kernel command line:

FILE /etc/default.grubadd to kernel command line
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset"

Wifi

the intel soc wifi that comes with the processor (i7-7Y75 in my case) works with [iwlwifi].
