/dev/input/mice?

How to get /dev/input/mice device in /dev? I untagged the following lines in /etc/devfsd.conf but doesn't appear.
## Uncomment this to manage USB mouse
# REGISTER        ^input/mouse0$        CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname usbmouse
# UNREGISTER        ^input/mouse0$        CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink usbmouse
REGISTER        ^input/mice$    CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname usbmouse
UNREGISTER        ^input/mice$    CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink usbmouse

/input/mice doesn't appear by re-booting the computer, so how to do it (devfsd ???)?

My experimental hardware detect recognizes the USB mouse and temporary adds the /input/mice in /dev. To run the USB mouse on next boot without hwd, I will have to add the daemon (or whatever) in /etc/rc.local?

For your information (sarah31), I am removing the auto setup options from the hwd. The aim is to make the hwd package to detect only and provide info how to do it manually. Not to install any configs. The aim basis what we said on topic:

Load module "usb-uhci" (if not compiled in kernel):

modprobe usb-uhci
