    Don't allow relative and absolute axes on the same device.
    This is a bit of a mess. The MS Optical Desktop 2000 registers both relative
    and absolute axes on the same device (the mouse). The absolute axes have a
    valid min/max range for x/y and thus overwrite the x/y relative axes in the
    server (no, this is not a server bug). And I wouldn't be surprised if other
    devices have similar issues.
    Since the device only sends relative events after that, the mouse is
    essentially restricted to the min..max range of 0..255. The server simply
    doesn't do unrestricted relative axis and restricted absolute axis on the same
    device (not for the same axis numbers anyway).
