 Section "InputDevice"
   Name "Mouse0"
   Driver "evdev"
   Option "Name" "QEMU 0.8.2 QEMU USB Tablet"
   Option "Mode" "Absolute"

And make sure Mouse0 is listed as your core pointer in the ServerLayout

The 'Name' field there may need to be changed - I can't remember what name
the F8 Xen QEMU exports. This example was from original F7. Look in the
/proc/bus/input/devices file for actual name.
