Subject: [PATCH] disable i8042 check on apple mac

As those computers never had any i8042 controllers, and the
current lookup code could potentially lock up/hang/wait for
timeout for long periods of time.

Fixes intermittent hangs on boot on a MacbookAir1,1

Bugzilla: N/A
Upstream-status: http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1005.0/00938.html (and pinged on Dec 17, 2013)
