Subjectanother must-fix: major PS/2 mouse problem
Lots of people (check Google) get this message
from the kernel:

psmouse.c: Lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.

(the number of bytes will be 1, 2, or 3)

At work, I get it when there is heavy NFS traffic.
The mouse goes crazy, jumping around and doing
random cut-and-paste all over everything. This is
with a decently fast and modern PC.

I'll guess that NFS and the mouse both have worker
threads fighting for CPU time, and neither is RT.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
