Subject[PATCH] psmouse: run kpsmoused only while needed
While looking at the workqueue tracer, I noticed that kpsmoused receives
rarely (if not never) events.

Currently, when a mouse has to resync, it uses the kpsmoused singlethreaded
workqueue. But recync are rare. While reading an old discussion, it seems
that usual workqueue events can't be used for that purpose because resync
can take too much time and could delay the other works in queue.

But if you have built psmouse driver, this workqueue will always be present
whether you have a ps/2 port or not. And its events are rare.

To avoid this pointless task, this patch makes the kpsmoused a kernel
thread only created on the fly when a recync is needed. Once the recync is done,
this thread will die. So you will almost never see it, and it will not be
an inactive task anymore.

This thread is created through a usual workqueue event (because we can't create
it from interrupt).
