Try to implement that in user space please - you should be able to react
to keyboard events via /dev/input/something, just have a small daemon
disable the trackpad for a short period following a key event. This might
require routing mouse events through another user space daemon like gpm
that can easily be 'blanked' by the key events.

Putting this in the kernel might annoy a lot of people (I prefer to have
the option to move the mouse while pressing modifier keys or mouse
emulation buttons, for instance).
