I thought Anthony Liguori had already written a Wacom tablet emulator
for QEMU and that worked fine except it supports only one button. I
don't remember if this support was complete and I don't have a link to
the patch.

With this you don't need to disable mouse acceleration in the guest OS
because it makes no sense to accelerate a tablet.

On the other hand writing a guest-side driver for QEMU would leave
room for further improvements like hiding/showing or
grabbing/releasing the mouse at specific moments. Or, possibly reusing
tools from Win4Lin or VMtools from VMware.
