Subject[PATCH] Input: psmouse - disable autoresync
Automatic resynchronization in psmouse driver causes problems on some
hardware so disable it by default for now. People with KVM switches
that require resync can still enable it via module parameter or sysfs

Unfortunately I could not spend enouggh time during 2.6.16 cycle to resolve
all issues with the code so we better turn it off by default for now.
