Side note: I'm wondering how painful it would be to just make nomux
the default.

I think it's getting to be a legacy issue, since the traditional
reason for it (afaik) is just having both an external PS/2 port _and_
a touchpad connnected to the same controller. And even when that
happens, it seems that as often as not, the bug reports in this area
have been about the touchpad _not_ working due to us incorrectly
thinking it's muxed.

I dunno. Maybe mux mode is used more than I think it is, and it would
cause tons of problems. But I do find myself wondering whether we'd be
better off not doing mux by default, and making the DMI check instead
check for systems that *do* want muxing.

Hmm? Am I just being crazy?
