This makes no difference to me.

Also at boot time, I sometimes get messages:

atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (raw set 0, code 0x0 on isa0060/serio0)
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes 00 <keycode> to make it known.

This appears several times after seeing:
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq1

If also see:

Failed to disable AUX port, but continuing anyway... Is this a Sis?
If AUX port is really absent please use the 'i8042.noaux' option
serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq12

These last 3 messages disappear if I boot with i8042.noaux, but
otherwise there is no difference.

I DO have a PS/2 mouse port (with nothing plugged in). I think these
symptoms are significant.

I also get the following message:

input: PS/2 Generic mouse on isa0060/serio

which looks highly significant.

I also get a message about trying to initialise
an ohci1394, which ends with:

FATAL: Module ohci1394 not found.

On FC1 this was present in 

This sounds really serious.
