This breaks my mouse badly - it never syncs now and just flies all over the
screen doing damage when it's touched.
psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: model IntelliMouse Explorer, device ID 4
As it happens I have a dodgy KVM switch that almost definitely syncs things
up badly, but I see the always-out-of-sync problem without going near the KVM.
