I use this same method, with a usb logitech first mouse... It works, and
I can always use the mouse in X, after suspend, and also after removing
and re-inserting the mouse. I've also got my laptop's touchpad mapped to
/dev/input/mice so they both control the pointer (X and console).
The only problem I notice is that the scrollwheel doesn't work when the
mouse isn't connected on starting of X, it drop's back to a default ps2
mouse with 3 buttons (and not 5...)
