I either didn't able to make it work at all after such
freeze, or it worked automatically after loading usbhid.

BTW, it's 2.6.10, I can't made it work with 2.6.11 at all.

Can you try 'usb-handoff' on the kernel command line?

The problem has nothing to do with USB per se, as far as
I can see. PS2 keyboard and mouse does not work when
the USB subsystem (incl. usbcore) is not loaded. And the
problem is with PS2 keyboard/mouse, not with USB one which
works just fine.
