Subjectkmouse
I just installed kmouse 0.32 and gpm 1.09.  Here are my observations:
- I had to make some changes to get support for module versioning.
- X and programs using libgpm were happy with kmouse.
- programs using libvga were unhappy, producing random output on the text
console when mouse events were generated whether they were trying to use
/dev/kmouse or /dev/ttyS0. (I have a MSC mouse on /dev/ttyS0.)

Here are relevant portions of a strace of an svgalib program which tried
to use the mouse (I ran it with /dev/mouse -> /dev/kmouse):

open("/dev/mouse", O_RDWR) = 6
fcntl(6, F_SETFL, O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK) = 0

ioctl(6, SNDCTL_TMR_CONTINUE, {B9600 -opost -isig -icanon -echo ...}) = -1
ENOIOCTLCMD (errno 515)
write(6, "*n", 2) = 2
select(1, NULL, NULL, NULL, {0, 10000}) = 0 (Timeout)
ioctl(6, SNDCTL_TMR_CONTINUE, {B1200 -opost -isig -icanon -echo ...}) = -1

ioctl(6, TCGETS, 0xbffff84c) = -1 ENOIOCTLCMD (errno 515)
ioctl(6, SNDCTL_TMR_CONTINUE, {B4800 -opost -isig -icanon -echo ...}) = -1
