vmmouse: adapt to mouse handler changes.

This patch updates the vmmouse handler registration and activation.

Old behavior:
vmmouse_read_id, vmmouse_request_relative and vmmouse_request_absolute
unregister the handler and re-register it.

New behavior:
vmmouse_request_relative and vmmouse_request_absolute will unregister
the handler in case the mode did change. Then register and active the
handler with current mode if needed.

Note that the old code never ever activates the handler, so the
vmmouse doesn't receive events. This trips up Fedora 14 for example:
Boot a default install without usb tablet, watch the X-Server activating
the vmmouse then, enjoy a non-functional mouse.
