Please back this out. FYI, there are two keyboard related problems
with these Compaq/HP (Compal OEM) laptops. The hint flag fixes
infamous 'shutdown while probing keyboard' problem. The second
problem is resource conflict when ACPI is enabled. The symptom is
atkbd probe failure. This problem can be fixed via ASL patch. This
can be done via network or with a USB keyboard.
