Like others have said, xorg-input-input-evdev is the most likely
suspect. But you should check first if the problem really is in X only.
So when you are on the login screen, press ctrl-alt-f1 and see if it
drops you to a console. Try to login there. If that doesn't work, the
problem is not in X but most likely with udev or even the kernel.

To workaround the situation, you could try to add the following
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (section "ServerFlags"), create it if necessary:
option  "AllowEmptyInput"  "false"

Hope this helps,
