Yeah, I noticed.

Yes, this problem is fixed now.

For Paul, this patch does:
- fixes 2.3.15 compilation issues vs. CONFIG_MOUSE/CONFIG_BUSMOUSE
- convert adb_mouse_setup to new style (compiles, but not tested yet)
- added 2nd Xpmac style mouse button emulation mode:
	adb_buttons=1,x,y: exactly like the old version, one key == one button
	adb_buttons=2,x,y: Xpmac style, one key + mouse click == one button

BTW, Paul, is there any chance we can go back to USB keycodes before 2.4? This
seems a lot more logical in the longterm.
