KEY_CONFIG is already generated by Fn + F# on some ThinkPads to launch
the GNOME/KDE control center/panel and I believe that at least GNOME
comes with a default binding to map KEY_CONFIG to the control-center.

So IMHO re-using KEY_CONFIG for the doubletap trackpoint thing is not
a good idea. But as mentioned elsewhere in the thread everyone seems
to be ok with using KEY_VENDOR for this ?
