[nSLUG] doublespeed mouse with XFree86 on 2.6 kernel

There's a slight gotcha when using 2.6 kernels with a PS/2 mouse.
Assuming you have a Secion "InputDevice" for /dev/psaux and /dev/input/mice
(both with either CorePointer or SendCoreEvents), your pointer will move at
double speed when running a 2.6 kernel compiled with /dev/input support for
PS/2 mice. So either don't do that, or comment out the /dev/psaux device
from your ServerLayout section.
# ps/2 device
# InputDevice "Configured Mouse"
# /dev/input device
InputDevice "Generic Mouse"
I also changed the Generic Mouse section to be CorePointer, not just option
SendCoreEvents. I don't know if that was necessary or not.
Anyway, just thought this might be useful.
