Also psmouse-base.c call psmouse_reset between alps_detect() and
alps_init(). We must do trackstick detection after psmouse_reset,
but intorducing another psmouse_reset in alps_detect() will slow
down initialization for ALPS devices. Also do not remember that
psmouse_reset will lock both keyboard & mouse for one second
(sometimes for two) on my laptop. I played with this and I think
my patch is good approach how to do trackstick detection without
slowdown or other side effects.

Also we do not need to know if ALPS touchpad has trackstick
device in alps_detect() phase. In alps_detect() we just need to
know if PS/2 device is ALPS or not. From psmouse/serio point of
view there is only one ALPS device on PS/2/i8042 bus. Just
alps.ko driver parse PS/2 packets and detect which packet has
touchpad header and which trackpoint. So we really do not need to
know if trackstick is there or not in alps_detect() function.
