I had the same problem, until I found out that I didn't need usbmouse.
Since you use hid, you should use the 'mousedev' module. Registering
devices is done at a lower level, so that doesn't say much about the
support. Mousedev is the module that handles mouse support for full hid.
Usbmouse is a module which handles stripped down mouse support which
might or might not work, depending on your mouse. I understand that it
is mainly useful for embedded devices.
