Okay, there are two problems: 1), the i8042 module was lacking
modaliases. This is resolved by this patch http://pastebin.com/bKydQZLF

2) Some machines to not export the i8042 controller by either ACPI or
PNP - for example, on my machine. Loading i8042 works just fine, but it
will never be autodetected.

This message is probably related:
[14287.808024] i8042: PNP: No PS/2 controller found. Probing ports directly.

So, should we just apply the patch and leave it as a module, or should
we make it built-in again and close
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/27555 as "Won't fix"?
