Unhappy Touchpad is not working with 2.6.9 - Toshiba P10-792


I have installed Knoppix 3.6 on my Toshiba P10-792 laptop.
I was running Kernel 2.6.8.1 and ALSA 1.0.7rc2 because it had support for the software modem of my laptop , with 2.6.x before 2.6.9 when i restart or switch off the laptop i can turn it on again only if i remove the power cable and put it back , with 2.4.x there was no such a problem , something nasty is happening . With 2.6.9 this problem was fixed, also the snd_attiixp_modem is included in the kernel but the touchpad stopped working .

With 2.6.8.1 or 2.6.7 , with cat /proc/bus/input/devices i get :
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=0000

I have compiled as modules tsdev , evdev in both kernels.
With Kernels 2.6.7 , 2.6.8.1, 2.4.27 the touchpad is working fine on X 4.0.3 with synaptic driver and the ps2 driver also .
I can not find was it is going wrong.
If you have any idea please post it .
Thank you
