I am now using 2.5.51 and I still have the problem when I reboot from a 2.5.51
kernel to a 2.5.51 or 2.4.19 kernel both my internal keyboard and mouse (DELL
Inspiron 8100) are not working anymore. The strange thing is the keyboard
does work in grub.

relevant dmesg output:
        device class 'input': registering
        register interface 'mouse' with class 'input'
        mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
        register interface 'joystick' with class 'input'
        register interface 'event' with class 'input'
        input: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad on isa0060/serio1
        serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
        input: AT Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0
        serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
