"First we add a section with server flags to our xorg.conf:

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "on"
Option "AutoEnableDevices" "on"
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "on"

"This tells xorg that it is OK that we have removed all input devices in the file. Then we can comment out the devices we have listed (to later remove them for good).

"Now we need to convert our input settings to the new fdi config file structure. There are some example files scattered across the web, for example on Ubuntu's wiki. The settings are quite basic for most people, so it makes it easy to write the file."
