Just a workaround. Do you have a PS/2 mouse you could test with? If so could
you check if both keybioard and mouse work with mouse plugged in and without
i8042.noaux.

Also cxould you please try the patch below (again with mouse if you have one
and without).

Thanks a lot!

Input: i8042 - give more trust PNP data on i386

On some boxes that don't have PS/2 mice connected at startup BIOS
completely disables AUX port and attempts to access it result in
hosed keyboard. Historically we do not trust ACPI/PNP data on
i386 and try to poke AUX port even if we did not find an active
PNP node for it. However in cases when BIOS writers got KBD port
properly described we can assume that they did the right thing
for AUX port as well.
