Linus' USB stack differs from Inkays in a few ways.  This is one.  It
seems Busmouse is too limited or something along those lines, so a
modified PS/2 is "better".   The goal eventually is for /dev/mouse to be a
real device, where all mouse data ends up (ala windows and macos w/ multi
mice) and /dev/mouseX for mouseX.  At least thats how it was at one point.
