That InputDevice entry is interesting. It has to be added to a Keyboard
section, not standalone as shown (unless I missed something).
(If it was standalone, it would nicely eliminate the need for the
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp entry in my .xinitrc.)
For those who want to do that with hal, for all keyboards, here's a
patch for /usr/local/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-x11-input.fdi:
