"macintosh" should for a Mac keyboard, the "pcxxx" XkbModels are for PC

Note that not 'the new input layer' demands a certain XkbModel (it's
used for both ADB and Linux keycodes), Linux keycodes do.

Of course there is, you just have to configure gpm accordingly. It
shouldn't be necessary though as /dev/input/mice works with any number
of processes using it.
