it is not good to add code to the kernel just to handle a user
input device that doesn't need it either.

The kernel delivers events on stuff like mice in the order
they occured. Its queued.

We don't need to get rid of it. We need a hardcoded sequence of
the alt-ctrl-shift-meta-space variety that forces the mode back. The
problem with this is emacs has taken all such sequences already ;)
