AEI is still there, but gets misused and causes other problems.  On 
FreeBSD it was used to address an early bug, since fixed.  Then it 
became seen as the way to disable hal in xorg.  It can cause trouble 
doing that, though.

So if you're trying to disable hal devices in xorg, first try

Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
