It's built in, isn't it?

grep MOUSEDEV= /boot/config-`uname -r`

mousedev is loaded and in use here, I guess it's the driver behind
/dev/input/mice and friends. My guess is /sbin/hotplug tries to load it
when the kernel generates a hotplug event for the mouse (or trackpad?).

Indeed, it does.

My only idea for the unix module is that something tries to access a
UNIX socket, and the kernel autoloads it.

Maybe all the problems are caused by or at least related to the /proc
