Not quite, no. xorg.conf is the configuration file for xorg-server. It
can do a lot more than just identify input devices.
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off" tells xorg-server: even if hal is present
and running, don't use it to detect input devices.
AFAIK, hal is not used by xorg-server for anything else. All other
autoconfig (video card detection, monitor detection, it even has its own
built-in input device detection) is done by the xorg server itself.
