Either ignore it, or remove from /etc/X11/xorg.conf the two sections that
begin:

Section "InputDevice"
        Driver          "wacom"

In the interests of making everything work for everybody, the rest of us get
these annoying messages - sometimes to the extent that the .xsession_errors
file can get so large as to bring your system (or at least certain apps) to
a halt.  I'd remove them, except that then every time you upgrade xorg,
it'll complain about me editing the conf file
