Subject[PATCH] Input: i8042-io - Exclude mips platforms when allocating/deallocating IO regions.
The standard IO regions are already reserved by the platform code on most MIPS
devices(malta, cobalt, sni). The Commit 197a1e96c8be5b6005145af3a4c0e45e2d651444
("Input: i8042-io - fix up region handling on MIPS") introduced a bug on these
MIPS platforms causing i8042 driver to fail when trying to reserve IO ports.
Prior to the above mentioned commit request_region is skipped on MIPS but
release_region is called.

This patch reverts commit 197a1e96c8be5b6005145af3a4c0e45e2d651444 and also
avoids calling release_region for MIPS.
