I'm still finding the 'bug112315' branch commits necessary to avoid the excessive thermal generation issue with my Broadwell i3-5157 laptop. Thankfully, still working with 5.4.11.

Dug out my Dell inspiron 7559 and updated it from Kernel 4.19.x to 5.4.13.. looks like that ran me into this issue:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205793

Hopefully they sort it out soon, otherwise I might need to figure out how to install a 5.3.x kernel so I have a touchpad again lol.

Downgrading to an EOL kernel when there's a patch available? Well, that's *your* machine

I don't actually know how to apply a patch or anything, I've never updated or changed my kernel beyond using slackpkg and updating my boot loader.

if you scroll at the end of the bug you linked it's said that it's a duplicate of bug 205745: if you scroll also at the end of that it's confirmed that it's fixed with the release 5.4.8 of the linux kernel...
according to this I suppose in your case it could be something else.

if you are feeling adventurous, you can also downgrade the kernel back to the latest 4.19.x version shipped in current and see if the touchpad works again: you can find a cumulative backup of the packages here.
