Yes, they should. USB HID == USB Human Interface Device. It's one of
the sort of devices that USB supports. I've had to turn it on when I
build kernels to get support for my USB UPS's. I'd guess the message
is saying that the kernel has discovered a USB mouse that's compatible
with the PS2 protocols, but that's just a guess.
