 I've found that 5.4 as of today won't load the psm0 driver if the box is 
 connected through a KVM instead of directly to the mouse.
 
 When I plug the mouse directly into the box, 5.4 and 5.3 load psm0 no 
 problem.
 
 When I plug the mouse in via the KVM, 5.4 won't load psm0 but 5.3 will.
 
 If I plug the mouse in directly at boot time under 5.4, so psm0 loads, then 
 (don't do this at home) hot-unplug it and plug in the kvm-- the mouse works 
 via the KVM.
 
 Hope this helps
 
 Sincerely
 
 Harry Coin
