Have you tried adding the:
Option "AutoAddDevices" "off"
Option "AutoEnableDevices" "off"
settings in the ServerFlags section of xorg.conf? That should disable
the hal/dbus detections and use just the settings you have spelled out
in xorg.conf (which shouldn't be too much of an issue if you already
had a fully configured xorg.conf before the upgrade to 7.4).
