DESCRIPTION
     The wsmouse driver is an abstraction layer for mice within the wscons(4)
     framework.  It is attached to the hardware specific mouse drivers and
     provides a character device interface which returns struct wscons_event
     via read(2).  For use with X servers, ``mouse events'' can be generated.

     The wsconsctl(8) utility gives access to several configurable details
     that affect this driver.

   Ioctls
     The following ioctl(2) calls are provided by the wsmouse driver or by
     devices which use it.  Their definitions are found in
     dev/wscons/wsconsio.h.

     WSMOUSEIO_GETREPEAT (struct wsmouse_repeat)
                   Retrieve the current automatic button repeating configura-
                   tion.  The structure returned is as follows:

                         struct wsmouse_repeat {
                                 unsigned long   wr_buttons;
                                 unsigned int    wr_delay_first;
                                 unsigned int    wr_delay_decrement;
                                 unsigned int    wr_delay_minimum;
                         };

                   The wr_buttons field is a bit mask that specifies which
                   buttons send press and release events periodically while
                   they are physically held down.  The least significant bit
                   corresponds to button 0.

                   The other three fields describe the frequency upon which
                   these automatic events are sent.  wr_delay_first specifies
                   the milliseconds before the first repeated event is sent.
                   wr_delay_decrement is used to calculate the delay between
                   the most recently generated event and the forthcoming one:
                   the previous delay is taken and it is decreased by the
                   value given in this variable.  wr_delay_minimum specifies
                   the minimum delay, in milliseconds, between two consecutive
                   events.

     WSMOUSEIO_SETREPEAT (struct wsmouse_repeat)
                   Set the automatic button repeating configuration.  See
                   WSMOUSEIO_GETREPEAT above for more details.

     WSMOUSEIO_SETVERSION (int)
                   Set the wscons_event protocol version.  The default is 0
                   for binary compatibility.  The latest version is always
                   available as WSMOUSE_EVENT_VERSION, and is currently 1.
                   All new code should use a call similar to the below to
                   ensure the correct version is returned.

                         int ver = WSMOUSE_EVENT_VERSION;
                         if (ioctl(fd, WSMOUSEIO_SETVERSION, &ver) == -1)
                             err(EXIT_FAILURE, "cannot set version");
