If you're using the kernel's PS/2 mouse driver, the option to build it as
a module doesn't exist.  I recall from a past issue of Kernel Traffic that
the PS/2 mouse driver shares a lot of code with the PS/2 keyboard driver.
It's a "have it/don't have it" type of proposition; the option to build as
a module simply isn't there.
