GENERIC-{23,24,26} and MRG-{23,24,26} kernels hang or panic while probing
the ADB during boot.  MRG kernels hang; GENERIC kernels panic with a
uvm_fault right after the ADB probe.  This happens with both standard
Apple one-button mice and the A3 Mouse Systems mouse, both of which work
with the 1.4.2 GENERIC kernel.


Part of the problem is resolved with a patch Steve Brown worked up. With
his patch 1.4Y -current kernels boot with the Apple one-button mouse on
my system but panic with the uvm_fault when the A3 mouse is used.
