I can forward you the udev rules and helper scripts if you want. This means that you can hardcode the /dev nodes in your xorg.conf file and udev will make sure they don't move on you. I wrote this up in the early days of evdev development before the phys stuff was there.Dmitry Torokhov wrote:

So people with z-axis mice need to redo their X config for each
kernel release when the device numbers change? Or should they
be using some other configuration?
People using this now have X crashes on kernel upgrade because
event1 became event2:
Option "Device" "/dev/input/event1"
I'd recommend matching on "phys" or individual capabilities bits
instead of device node. See "man evdev".
