So finally got the Freya Beta to run on my Thinkpad S440. I'm struggling a bit with the trackpad + trackpoint configuration but I'm optimistic that'll work by tomorrow.
Not the touchpad was wrong, but the touchpad-trackpoint interaction - which is a major problem with all *40 Thinkpads. They don't have dedicated Trackpoint Buttons anymore like your Dell so that's what the evdev patch is for. Unfortunately I can't help you with your speed issue.
