Subject[PATCH 00/10] Kconfig: cleanup SERIO_I8042 dependencies
Date
This patch series removes the messy dependencies from SERIO_I8042
by having it depend on one variable (ARCH_MAY_HAVE_PC_SERIO) and
having architectures which need it select that variable in
arch/*/Kconfig.

New architectures are unlikely to need SERIO_I8042, so this avoids
having an ever growing list of architectures to exclude. If an
architecture without i8042 support isn't excluded through the
dependency list for SERIO_I8042 or through explicit disabling in
a config, it will likely panic on boot with something similar to
this (from arm64):

[ 27.426251] [<ffffffc00084cc2c>] i8042_init+0x58/0xe8
[ 27.426320] [<ffffffc000080bec>] do_one_initcall+0xc4/0x14c
