moused(1) with usbd(1). Don't forget to compile uhid, ums, and all
other dependent drivers into the kernel, either statically or as modules
(man ums, uhid will get you on your way here).
Try moused with auto detection, using /dev/ums0. If you don't see
anything about a USB mouse being attached in dmesg, you don't have the
right drivers compiled for your kernel. If you do, moused / usbd hasn't
been setup yet.
cat /dev/sysmouse will yield you the info you seek in the end, but
you should try /dev/ums0 first, because that will work regardless of
whether or not moused is started.
Good luck :),
