Works fairly nicely for me (nice job!), except the mouse does not work
in both console (gpm) and X. This is on a thinkpad T21, 2.6.8-rc2-mm2
with the M5 patch. Doing 'echo 0 > /proc/irq/{1|12}/i8042/threaded'
does not work. This trivial workaround fixes it for me:

Other things that might be relevant

- both with and without the workaround, I get this:
"Jul 30 08:42:40 hydra kernel: atkbd.c: Spurious ACK on
isa0060/serio0. Some program, like XFree86, might be trying access
hardware directly."

- both with and without the workaround, I get this:
