On my system, lsmod | grep bluetooth:
bluetooth 44228 6 rfcomm,hidp,l2cap,hci_usb

My dmesg shows:
usbcore: registered new driver usbfs
usbcore: registered new driver hub
Bluetooth: Core ver 2.7
NET: Registered protocol family 31
Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: HCI USB driver ver 2.8
usbcore: registered new driver hci_usb
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.7
Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.1
Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.5
Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
That probably matches pretty much what you're getting now. I think
the hidp is all I'm using as far as the mouse goes.

Yeah, you might have to compromise. When I was looking I didn't see
any traditional three-button bluetooth mice. Aside from that, though,
this Kensington mouse has been just right. Big and comfortable.
Best of luck,
