No. AllowEmptyInput is wrong. It was causing so many problems that it
has been removed from later xorg-server releases.
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off" is the one that means "dont' use Hal to
detect input devices".

Really, the simplest solution is to build xorg-server with the HAL
option disabled. I agree that this should be the default.
