Thanks for the patch. I do not doubt this fixes the issues, but I
still wonder if we should not export REL_HWHEEL_HI_RES instead of
REL_HWHEEL events.

Also, I can not figure out how the events are processed by the kernel.
Could you attach a hid-recorder dump of the mouse wheels with
hid-recorder from https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/libevdev/hid-tools ?

This should give me a better view of the mouse, and I could also add
it to the regression tests I am running for each commit.

Cheers,
Benjamin
