What happens if you attempt bind serio2 first when you (re)enable, before you attempt to (re)bind serio1 (since you have observed that when you unbind serio1, serio2 also unbinds)?

tpconfig - Configure touchpad devices SYNOPSIS
This program can show or modify the configuration of several different kinds of touchpad devices, including most Synaptics TouchPad devices and the ALPS Glidepad/Stickpointer. Options for all touchpads: --help Display a help summary and exit. -D [N], --debug[=N] Generate debugging output, where N of 1, 2, or 3 specifies the debugging level. If N is 0, debugging is turned off. If N is not given, it defaults to 1. -d DEVICE, --device=DEVICE Use DEVICE as the device file for the mouse. If this option isn't given, the device file /dev/psaux is used. --version Display the version and copyright information and exit. -i, --info Display the current touchpad configuration. -x, --reset Perform a software reset on the touchpad. Options for all Synaptics TouchPads: -q, --quiet, --silent Suppress verbose output. -a [N] Display the packet mode. With argument N, set the packet mode, where N=0 means relative and N=1 means absolute. --absolute Set the packet mode to absolute. --relative Set the packet mode to relative. -r [N], --rate[=N] Display the reporting rate. With argument N, set the reporting rate, where N=0 means normal, and N=1 means high. Options for older Synaptics TouchPads only: -t [N], --tapmode[=N] Display the tapping mode. With argument N, set the tapping mode, where N=0 means no tap gestures, and N=1 means tap and drag. -s [N], --sleep[=N] Display the sleep mode. With argument N, set the sleep mode, where N=0 means disable, and N=1 means enable. Options for newer Synaptics TouchPads only: -t [N], --tapmode[=N] Display the tapping mode. With argument N, set the tapping mode, where N=0 means no tap gestures, N=1 means tap-to-click only, N=2 means tap and non-locking drag, and N=3 means tap and locking drag. -2, --two-button Set two-button mode. -3, --three-button Set three-button mode. -c [N], --corner[=N] Display the corner-tap mode. With argument N, set the corner-tap mode, where N=0 means disable, and N=1 means enable. -e [N], --edgemode[=N] Display edge motion. With argument N, set edge motion, where N=0 means never, N=1 means always, and N=3 means only during drag. -m Display which mouse button is simulated by corner taps. --middle-button Make corner taps simulate the middle mouse button. --right-button Make corner taps simulate the right mouse button. -z [N], --zthreshold[=N] Display the z threshold setting (tap sensitivity). With argument N, set the z threshold setting to N. --threshold[=N] (Same as --zthreshold.) Options for ALPS touchpads: -r, --reset Reset ALPS device. -t [N], --tapmode[=N] Display the tapping mode. With argument N, set the tapping mode, where N=0 means tapping disabled, and N=1 means tapping enabled. EXAMPLES
Often it's desirable to disable tap mode, to prevent mouse events from being generated when the hand brushes the touchpad: tpconfig --tapmode=0 AUTHORS
