Man top says:

When this toggle is On, individual threads will be displayed for all
processes in all visible task windows. Otherwise, top displays a
summation of all threads in each

It says nothing about kernel threads, and everything it lists has a pid, so not
a kernel thread.

I don't believe normal userland tools can monitor the kernel CPU usage.

But I do agree that it sound like something in the kernel is probably the
culprit here.

The mouse problems seem worth investigating. Maybe dig in the junk drawer for

different kind of mouse (serial, bluetooth, usb-wired) and see if that changes

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
