Sadly, I must report that yes, the problem still intermittently occurs in 2.6.13-rc4 :-( I'm the one that tested on the Shuttle FT61 Motherboard. Never has a problem in windows and never in 2.6.11 and earlier.

I first noticed this problem sometime during 2.6.12-rc series.

Sigh. I think it would help if you could generate a new report, please.

We need a super-easy way for people to do bisection searching.

I dug up the original email that I sent to LKML...

In 2.6.12-rc5-mm1, I can't use my psaux mouse, but it worked perfectly fine in both 2.6.12-rc5 and in 2.6.12-rc4-mm2.

In 2.6.12-rc5-mm1 , dmesg says:

PNP: PS/2 Controller [PNP0303:PS2K,PNP0f13:PS2M] at 0x60,0x64 irq 1,12
Failed to disable AUX port, but continuing anyway... Is this a SiS?
If AUX port is really absent please use the 'i8042.noaux' option.
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1

This is what dmesg says in both 2.6.12-rc4-mm2 and 2.6.12-rc5 :

PNP: PS/2 Controller [PNP0303:PS2K,PNP0f13:PS2M] at 0x60,0x64 irq 1,12
serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1

I am using a Shuttle FT61 motherboard. Is there any more information necessary to debug this?
