Well, this is the modules which will be added to the /etc/modules. I
understand that it may well be possible that the X installation stuff, but i
suppose the mouse should be usefull even for gpm or other non-X stuff, and
having no mouse driver module loaded after the reboot is not a nice thing.

Notice that i asked about this (altough addressed to Kamion) on irc before
making the change while you where there, so you could have remarqued on it
before i go forward and implemented this.

So, if this is not the right place for registering this module for future use,
what is ? discover, which has trouble handling more than one module per pci
id ? hotplug ? The X configuration stuff ? i have some doubt about Branden
accepting this kind of stuff though, unless there is a generic module loading
mechanism for X, and this doesn't solve the case of non-X mouse users.
