Maybe you don't know that there are no kernel drivers for serial mouse,
only for the serial port. There is an userspace driver (a daemon), called
moused. If you get it to work, mouse should work in X11, if the
Xserver is configured to use wsmouse. Look at the moused manual page,
you'll need to tell it the serial port device and the mouse type (it has
some autodetection capabilities which could help you with that).
