Compiling PS2 support into the kernel solves the gpm GP and the mouse is
But still the keyboard locks up if I move the mouse with gpm installed,
without gpm moving the mouse is OK. Re-plugging the keyboard or kbd_mode -a
don't help with the lockup. I assume the BIOS doesn't setup the interrupt
for the mouse correctly (count for IRQ 12 still equals 0 after moving the
mouse), but then still moving the mouse shouldn't lockup the keyboard?
