[PLEASE TEST] Better support for Synaptics Touchpads

Hi Philip:

  I get freezes when I attempt to configure my synaptics touchpad,
with sysinstall.
Here are the details:
5.2-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.2-CURRENT #0: Sun Aug  8 19:40:37 CDT 2004
Powernotebooks C 3:16

dmesg output:     psm0: model Synaptics Touchpad, device ID 0

What happens:
1) Run /usr/sbin/sysinstall
2)  I set the mouse to auto and then try and test it. It freezes
FreeBSD requiring a hard reboot.

I will apply your patch tonight and test again.
