As far as people can currently tell that is down to supermicro bios bugs.
Compiling the HCD in hides this by turning off USB legacy emulation before
the bios can get involved - so the kernel ends up talking to the real
PS/2 hardware.

The 2.6.x kernel is much smarter about PS/2 devices. Unfortunately it turns
out that half the worlds bios vendors and a small percentage of the hardware
people have apparently never read the spec 8(

On your dual xeon it would be interesting to know if it behaves if you turn
off USB legacy keyboard/mouse stuff before booting Fedora
