You can add the Tongfang GK5CN6Z http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/tongfang-gk5cn5z-and-tongfang-gk5cn6z.815943/ to the supported hardware list. As you can see this device deserves an own subreddit. boot param: acpi_osi=! acpi_osi=‘Windows 2009’
Touchpad was fixed in Kernel 4.18.15, still you need to compile a custom kernel with pinctrl-cannonlake module enabled. This will fix the Touchpad and give you better performance overall.
I still haven’t manage to get optimus to work at all, neither bumblebee nor the next-gpu.sh solution from the debian wiki gave me something working. Workaround for me: disable discrete Gpu via acpi_call. With the bigger battery it gives me around 6h of battery life under normal workload - cons: all 3 hdmi ports are wired to the gtx1060 which means I can’t add a 2nd screen. core and cache undervolted with -130mV for best performance.
If you want a Dell xps15 and want to beat the rich kids in geekbench, but are on an budget and like tinkering: go for it.
