Umm.. there lie dragons. There is an implicit relationship between i8042
and PNP/ACPI devices representing keyboard and mouse ports, and I am not
sure how happy i8042 (and most importantly the BIOS) will be if they get
shut down before i8042. Also there is EC which is in theory independent
but in practice not so much.
