Subject[PATCH 2/2] Revert "ACPI / button: Change default behavior to lid_init_state=open"
This reverts commit 77e9a4aa9de10cc1418bf9a892366988802a8025.

Even if the method implementation can be buggy on some platform,
the "open" choice is worse. It breaks docking stations basically
and there is no way to have a user-space hwdb to fix that.

On the contrary, it's rather easy in user-space to have a hwdb
with the problematic platforms. Then, libinput (1.7.0+) can fix
the state of the LID switch for us: you need to set the udev

When libinput detects internal keyboard events, it will
overwrite the state of the switch to open, making it reliable
again. Given that logind only checks the LID switch value after
a timeout, we can assume the user will use the internal keyboard
before this timeout expires.

For example, such a hwdb entry is:

libinput:name:*Lid Switch*:dmi:*svnMicrosoftCorporation:pnSurface3:*
