    SubjectRe: PS/2 Mouse not being detected in 2.2.12
    I've encountered the problem too; basically it's due to the different ways in
    which the 2.2.x kernels detect the mouse vs the 2.0.x kernels.

    To work around the problem, apply this patch for now:

    static int __init psaux_init(void)
    {
    - if (!detect_auxiliary_port())
    + if (1 || !detect_auxiliary_port())
    return -EIO;

    misc_register(&psaux_mouse);
    (credits to Alan Cox, my own version of the workaround is a bit more convoluted)

    I should get off my lazy bum and look more active into a 'real' fix or providing
    a boot-time option for it!
