The only type of mouse on a 68k mac is ADB, and the entire ADB layer
got converted over to use the generic input system for 2.4. The old
adbmouse driver doesn't even exist in the tree in 2.6, but it was
still possible to compile it in during 2.4, i think.

Because of this, if a 68k mac is running anything 2.4 or 2.6, the
mice should show up in /dev/input/mice. If it is running a 2.2
kernel, they should show up in /dev/adbmouse (busmouse protocol).

The ppc macs made the same transition a few years ago. It's actually
an integrated code base for ADB support now.
