This is very interesting. It points to a possible solution - we could fall
back to reset the mouse in polled mode (blocking a lot of interrupts) in this

Could you update to -current and try running the mouse for a while with options
PMSDEBUG? This should print out delay timings that cause the regular resets
of your mouse interface.
