In non-hal setup (--disable-config-hal) AllowEmptyInput is automaticly true 
and this means:

"(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd' or 'mouse' will be 

and my mouse and keyboard stops working.

From log:
(==) Automatically adding devices
(==) Automatically enabling devices

The code has: xf86Info.allowEmptyInput = (xf86Info.autoAddDevices && 

and these are both auto*Devices are true in ./hw/xfree86/common/xf86Config.c 
by default..

After adding AllowEmptyInput "false" my mouse and keyboard is back.

This doesn't look correct, right?
