  Why is that.  An out-of-the-box 4.0.1 should nicely support
"wsmouse".  You cannot use your old XF86Config (from XFree86-3.3.x),
because several options have changed.  Here is the relevant part of my

# Core Pointer's InputDevice section

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "wsmouse"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/wsmouse0"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment

#    Option "BaudRate"  "9600"
#    Option "SampleRate"        "150"

  No patch should be necessary.  Maybe you were trying to use 'Driver
"wsmouse"' instead of 'Driver "mouse"' together with 'Option "Protocol"
