I scooped a dirty old MS Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 out of a mate's bin and
it breaks this assumption. The resolution multiplier is 16 which isn't an
integer fraction of 120. Real multiplier is 7.5.

The device sends hi-res values of 4, so it should end up as REL_WHEEL_HI_RES
30. We are getting 28 instead which doesn't add up to a nice 120.
Basic assumption: MS uses something other than plain 120 internally.

The choices we have now are:
- use 1200 or 12000 internally and divide by 10 before sending the
final value
- just make the evdev API use 1200 or 12000 and let userspace deal with it.
much simpler.

Any suggestions/comments?
