Indeed, ums provides a MOUSE_SETMODE ioctl for that.

I've just stumbled upon an undocumented switch of moused, -l, which should let
the user force the level (mode) of the device. It appears neither in the man 
page, nor in usage. Anyway, I couldn't get it to work without problems: in 
level 0, moused displays an error about an unappropriate ioctl(), and in level 
1, the mouse is painfully slow in X.org.

I'm a little bit lost with all that: I can't get moused to work correctly with 
my mouse, and I have to modify ums(4) to use the right mode by default.
I guess I'll try to write a little oneliner to set it using ioctl(), which will
be loaded at startup...
