Touchpad is recognized by the system as a generic PS/2 mouse. As a result, scrolling does not work (that I do not mind much) but more importantly it cannot be disabled while typing. Strangely enough, tapping works.
Patching psmouse.ko (using https://email@example.com/Recognize+ALPS+Touchpad+on+Dell+E6510+in+Ubuntu) results in system recognizing the touchpad properly (in particular, touchpad settings in KDE become available).
