    Hmm. I hate this.

    Linus, please - don't ask for such things.
    Our kernel does not need twelve thousand boot parameters.

    Mouse rate is of no importance during boot.
    Ergo, there is no reason to have it a boot parameter.

    Doing the default thing is good enough, I agree.
    And if the user wants something else, userspace should take care.
