thanks for the fast reply.
i want this option because i am developing the kernel driver.
when the X11 see a new input device connected. it recognize it like a mouse,

and X11 behave wired.
I didn't develop any X11 driver.
The X11 detect the the device as (type: MOUSE),
and if remove I will not have mouse in the system,
so i can not remove the driver, but i would like X11 to ignore this
so i will try to configure the HAL Magnus Kessler suggested.
