The intention of this codepath is to avoid the situation on desktop
devices where Weston starts but the input devices are broken.  In that
case, starting with no input devices will leave you unable to exit
unless you can use SSH or similar to kill it.

I realise it's different on embedded, but in this case, a
configuration or command-line option saying that it's OK to start with
no input devices seems appropriate.
