Update to 6.8.2.

I think we botched something in the kernel.

Using sysmouse as the mouse driver within's configuration causes the
my USB mouse to snap to the left side after a few seconds/minutes.
It will go up and down, but not right.  Only if I move it extremely slowly
will it go right, but move too fast and it snaps back to the extreme left.
Eirik Nygaard reported the same problem and not with 6.8.2.
Also an usb mouse.  He reports that killing off moused and using
dev/ums0/auto in x' configuration works around the problem.
It's not the recent patch-mouse.c that got added.

Ideas/suggestions welcome.
Not sure it has something to do with USB, I've had the same
trouble with a non USB-mouse, but that was on Linux and Xfree86
so it's possible that what something else. I fixed it then by
using another protocol in the X-configuration.
