This routine performs the same function as miPointerGetMotionEvents: the events in the motion history that are between the start and stop times (in mS) are placed in the coords vector, and the count of the number of items so placed is returned. This routine is called from dix/devices.c so that coords can hold valuator->numMotionEvents events. This routine is called from Xi/gtmotion.c with coords large enough to hold the same number of events in a variable-length extended xTimecoord structure. This provides sufficient data for the XGetDeviceMotionEvents library call, and would be identical to miPointerGetMotionEvents for devices with only 2 axes (i.e., core pointers) if xTimecoord used 32bit integers.
Because DMX uses the mi* routines for all core devices, this routine only has to support extension devices using the polymorphic coords. Because compatibility with miPointerGetMotionEvents is not possible, it is not provided.
