Hi,

My goal is to run a standard Debian kernel and its octeon variant[1] on
the Ubiquity EdgeRouter Lite. The ERLite needs a couple of patches
to boot and work (octeon-ethernet patch, octeon-usb driver) but these
are already merged 3.11 and I'll file Debian bugs to enable those
settings appropriately.

1: e.g. http://packages.debian.org/sid/linux-image-3.10-1-octeon

However, when trying to boot a standard Debian kernel in the ERLite I
get a 7s delay followed by an oops for a Data bus error on i8042_flush()
and ending up with a panic. It looks like the kernel is built with
CONFIG_SERIO_I8042=y.  The Octeon machine Debian owns prints "i8042: No
controller found" but works nevertheless.  This isn't the case with the
ERLite; I tried 3.2 & 3.10 and got the same oops which went away as soon
as I disabled CONFIG_SERIO_I8042.

Are there even any octeon machines with i8042 anyway? Should I request
for the setting to be disabled irrespective of this bug?

Yes. There is a rare board called NAC38 that was produced by ASUS in a 1U chassis. I don't think it is important to support this, so the best thing seems to be not to enable SERIO_I8042
