When power to the mouse is, either accidentally or intentionally, cut,
the internal setting of the mouse is naturally lost, and the mouse may
behave in a different way than the way the psm driver assumes...

Or, an ioctl to reset the mouse...  I have long rejected this idea
because it will only encourage people to detach and attach the PS/2
mouse, which is generally not capable of hot plug/unplug.

But, there now are so many dumb KVMs which screw us, and we may have
to accept that...
