82852/855GM (rev 02) Subsystem: IBM Device 0557 i686
Kernel: 2.6.35-gentoo-r1
gentoo linux
IBM ThinkPad X40
Display integrated (subnotebook)

After installing a new kernel form gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r1 I got no visible
mouse pointer on X (xorg-server-1.8.2) on my ThinkPad X40 I use icewm-1.2.37
but tried fvwm-2.5.30 and it is the same thing. It's possible to use the
pointer - you just can't see it. The last working kernel is:
gentoo-sources-2.6.34-r4 (34-r5 did not compile on the x40 - never happened
before) With the Kernel from gentoo-sources-2.6.35 I've got the same problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and compile gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r1 on the Thinkpad X40
2. start xorg-server-1.8.2 with icewm-1.2.37 or vwm-2.5.30 - probably with any
Actual Results:  
It's not possible to see the mouse pointer, but you can use it to point and
click in any usual way.

Expected Results:  
After starting X you see the mouse pointer on the screen.

gpm works on the tty-console
