There's an existing RFE that this would fit, but it's assigned to a bit of
a weird place at the moment (it's in the x86 Platform consolidation since
it was viewed as x86 specific at the time - since you use it on SPARC it
should probably just go to ON for both).
6223897: vuid3ps2 module should be extended to support synaptics touchpad.
(Casper previously did this in Xorg's mouse driver, but doing it in a kernel
VUID module would be a better fit to the virtual mouse model as well as
making it equally available to Xsun & Xorg.)
