Bug#510980: xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse: vmmouse loads mouse even when it is not used

Package: xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse
Version: 1:12.5.1-4
Severity: minor

The vmmouse driver loads the mouse driver on load and fails loading if
the mouse driver is not present.

Later during initialization it checks for presence of the vmware
compatible absolute coordinate device, and the mouse driver is not used
if such device is detected.

However, the mouse driver is loaded regardless of the presence of the
vmware pointing device, and the driver fails to load when the mouse
driver is not persent even if it would not be used anyway.
