I think we are trying to go in the different direction that what you are
proposing - we should automatically load mousedev and other input handlers
when input device that is compatible with that handler is registered with
input core, not the other way around. This way you won't need static device
node in your /dev, udev will create it for you as needed.

Same goes for your other patch.
