Your core pointer is the item configured as "Mouse1" in xorg.conf in the
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
Which uses the device "/dev/mouse"
Option "Protocol" "Auto" # Auto detect
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Which causes the error here in your log:
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/mouse
No such file or directory.
(EE) Mouse1: cannot open input device
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Mouse1"
(Searching for "EE" in the xorg.0.log file is usually an easy way to find
out what went wrong.)
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
