    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.
