OK, here's a trivial patch (linux-2.4.18) for disabling/ignoring
the mouse/trackpad while typing. It can be very convenient on notebook
NOTE: this patch works only on machines using the 'new' input layer
(e.g. Apple Powerbook, ibook, ...)

The holdoff time can be adjusted via sysctl/procfs - see description
in the patch file.
