Thinkpad T580 - Synaptics Metallica MIS Touch Fingerprint Reader

I have purchased a Thinkpad T580 recently and I replaced Windows with Linux. So far it looks like all devices are working except the fingerprint reader. According to the support page it has a Synaptics Metallica MIS Touch Fingerprint Reader device installed, but driver is only provided for Windows.

I visited symaptics.com and the website says I need to contact the OEM regarding hardware support.

 

Is there any plan to release a driver for Linux?

Yeah I just bought a T480 and I'm on the same boat.
I'm a little surprised that Lenovo didn't sihp the laptop with Linux friendly components or at least forced the vendors to supply linux support.
I thought there would be a fairly decent amount of T-series owners operating in Linux.
