Subject[PATCH][RESEND] Force mouse detection as imps/2 (and fix my KVM switch)
From
    After working out the symptoms of a problem I was having using my
scroll mouse with my KVM switch when running 2.6 kernels, I made this
patch which fixes the problem for me. I think it would be useful to
have this in the kernel, especially since it has other uses too.

I have a Logitech mouse with a scroll wheel that 2.6 kernels
detect as supporting the Logitech ps2++ protocol, and enable it as
such. My KVM switch supports only the Microsoft imps2 protocol for
using the scroll wheel, so after switching away from a box running a
2.6 kernel and back again, my scroll wheel no longer works; evbug
doesn't see any mouse events at all when I turn the scroll wheel.

2.4 (and Windows) don't have this problem because they use imps2
drivers, which my mouse is compatible with. So the appended patch
creates a new module/boot parameter, psmouse_imps2, largely copied
from psmouse_noext. With the option, the mouse detection is limited
to only the base ps2 protocol and the imps2 extensions, my mouse is
detected as a generic imps/2 device, and the scroll wheel works
properly again.

I've been using this patch for about a month. I've since seen
another use for this parameter; with it it is possible to disable the
synaptics touchpad driver and still use an external imps2 mouse.

I'm not sure if short-circuiting the mouse detection this way
might leave some mice wedged, or cause them to be improperly detected
though. Do the tests for imps/2 mice depend on any of the commands in
the detection this patch skips to initialize the mouse somehow?

This patch is against -test4; it applies to -test4-mm4 with
offsets (I'm running -mm4). More than half the length of the patch is
indentation. Is there a possibility of getting this applied?
