The T61 has both a touchpad and a trackpoint. Seems like on my T42,
only one works. Possibly there are settings for psm(4) or the synaptics
touchpad driver is needed.

AEI is the wrong option. If you want to stop xorg from using HAL to
detect input devices, there are two good ways:
1. Set Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
2. Build xorg-server with the HAL option disabled.
