Well, init is /bin/sh in this scenario, so you're saying the warnings
also appear if you don't type anything at the shell prompt? If not, the
idea is to start the /etc/rcS.d/S* scripts one by one and notice after
which one(s) the warnings appear.

Which doesn't sound like it's only for PS/2 mice, does it? :)

The input related module(s) could be loaded by something like hotplug.

Well, AFAICT the warnings basically say that the modules are already
loaded. Just a cosmetic problem.

BTW, are either of these in /etc/modules ?
