My only guess then is to spam psaux with data (seems to be three
byte packets, yes?) and see if anything gives.  I found some
information on similar (ie, requiring commands to activate
extensions) PS/2 devices at
http://www-hft.ee.tu-berlin.de/~strauman/tp4utils/ , so that will
give me something to go on if I have time.

Thanks for the reply,
