 *   See busmouse.c for particulars.
 *
 * Made things a lot mode modular - easy to compile in just one or two
 * of the misc drivers, as they are now completely independent. Linus.
 *
 * Support for loadable modules. 8-Sep-95 Philip Blundell <pjb27@cam.ac.uk>

 * Dynamic minors and /proc/mice by Alessandro Rubini. 26-Mar-96

 * Renamed to misc and miscdevice to be more accurate. Alan Cox 26-Mar-96
