And the bad thing is that violates multiple layers in the kernel. Atkbd
driver does not have to be using i8042; neither does psmouse. Althtough
they do in 99% of the cases there are other controllers providing the
i8042-style ports. Just grep for SERIO_8042 in drivers/input/serio.

I do not want to hard-code the i8042-psmouse-atkbd dependency.
