Especially now that the input device layer in the kernel exposes just
the "ExplorerPS/2" protocol, for every mouse.  Assuming that works
properly (and I'm not sure whether it does: I remember reading a few
things online where people were arguing that it was a bad decision,
based on certain hardware that they used), you shouldn't need auto; it
should just be configured for ExplorerPS/2 regardless of your mouse model.

OTOH, maybe the input device layer doesn't work that way anymore?  I
think it still does, though.
