How can we turn this option off on non-x86 and without selecting
CONFIG_EMBEDDED? It seems that as the configuration files stand,
it is impossible to deselect this option:

config SERIO_I8042
tristate "i8042 PC Keyboard controller" if EMBEDDED || !X86
default y
select SERIO

It seems that in menuconfig, it isn't possible to change this option

x x --- Serial i/o support x x
x x --- i8042 PC Keyboard controller x x
x x <M> Serial port line discipline x x

Maybe "!X86" doesn't mean "not X86 architectures" when it isn't

This means that all architectures which do not support 8042 get
8042 support forced in them. In my case, this is the result:
