I was just grepping for i8042 in platform code to determine that, this
came after having SERIO accidentally enabled on my platform
(BMIPS_GENERIC) and seeing that it crashed badly and it annoyed the crap
out of me that MIPS had ARCH_MIGHT_HAVE_PC_SERIO for platforms that
don't need it.

Will come up with a v2 that includes malta, any other platforms for
which it's not obvious?
