Reading from /dev/wsmouse was possible to get mouse events from any program.
You would get legacy events with 32bit time_t unless the program negotiates
the current protocol version.

This now fails and a read returns EINVAL.

Reason is that the legacy handling code was moved into the COMPAT_50 module,
if the module cannot be loaded, you get ENOSYS which is then translated
into EINVAL by the wsmouse driver.

hexdump -C /dev/wsmouse

Either move the code out of COMPAT_50 or use the current protocol
version as the default.
