Interesting. Yes, the new keyboard driver knows far too much about
keyboards, and that knowledge is right only in 98% of the cases.
No doubt we'll be forced to back out a lot of probing done now.

Could you try to change the #undef DEBUG in drivers/input/serio/i8042.c
into #define DEBUG and report what output you get at boot time?
