3.11.10.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tom Gundersen <teg@jklm.no>

commit dfaaed08ecc01bd513248ba7999daf50ce028352 upstream.

Moust (if not all) modern software, including X, uses /dev/eventX rather than
the legacy /dev/mouseX devices. It therefore makes sense for general-purpose
(distro) kernels to use MOUSEDV=m (or even n), so let's drop the EXPERT=y
requirement.
