not sure what fixed it. I did 2 things: disabled the device again, but this time deleting the drivers; then powered down all the way and left the battery out for a minute or so. booted back up, the touchpad was working in Windows again; rebooted into Linux and it was working there too.

but then ntfs-3g was failing, giving IO errors on access. upgraded my kernel to 3.16 and that's working now too. for some reason the wl driver didn't get built so I'm using brcmsmac and it's working fine.

still some rough edges but the base functionality is back. sooner or later I'll be able to remove the /opt/wheezy64 directory and free up that space for my Bitcoin blocks... but then I still have to rebuild bitcoind and americancoind. nothing escaped the wrath of my purge.
