this patch add PNP support for the i8042 driver in 2.6.10-rc1-mm5. Acpi is try before the pnp driver so if you don't disable ACPI or apply others pnpacpi patches, it won't change anything.
Please review it and apply if possible

Do we really need to keep those drivers loaded - i8042 will notIt is better to keep pnp driver loaded because when it unload, the resources will be disabled, so for the motherboards that allow it the irq won't work anymore, and so the keyboard and mouse won't work...
be hotplugged and ports are reserved anyway. We are only interested
in presence of the keyboard and mouse ports. Can we unregister
the drivers (both ACPI and PNP) right after registering and mark
all that stuff as __init/__initdata as in the patch below?
I also adjusted init logic so ACPI/PNP can be enabled/disabledNo problem as long as :
independently of each other.
