Cypress_ps2 trackpad fails with 5.10 kernel

My laptop uses a cypress ps2 trackpad which worked fine through kernel 5.9 series. Wtih 5.10 it fails.

I think the problem is related to a change in the kernel configuration for 5.10. In the 5.9 kernel, mouse_ps2 is configured as a module. In 5.10, it is configured as a built-in. As a result I am unable to load the cypress_ps2 driver since I can’t unload the built-in ps2-mouse driver.

I don’t know the source of this change – Manjaro or Kernel team.

Any help would be appreciated.
