I think the answer for you, if I understood you question, is to point
/dev/mouse to /dev/gpmdata, and point XF86Config to /dev/mouse.  Or
you can point XF86config to /dev/gpmdata directly.  I think you have
to make gpm repeat in "raw" mode so the information from the mouse
isn't being filtered twice.

Hope that helps
