When you rebuild your kernel (and you probably want to, really), set 
things up like this: 

 in "Input core support":  (these are the defaults, but check them)
   <*> Input core support
   <*>   Keyboard support 
   <*>   Mouse support
   (1024)    Horizontal screen resolution           
   (768)    Vertical screen resolution                                       
   < >   Joystick support                                                
   <*>   Event interface support

 in "Macintosh Device Drivers":
   [*] Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) support                     
   [ ]    Include MacIO (CHRP) ADB driver       <- doesn't matter
   [*]    Use input layer for ADB devices                    
   [ ]      Support for ADB raw keycodes        <- turn this OFF    
   [*]      Support for mouse button 2+3 emulation      

This way, you'll still be able to you /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid to emulate
buttons 2 and 3, but you won't have to specify 
keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1 at boot.
