Subject: Input: i8042 - add nomux quirk for Avatar AVIU-145A6

commit d2682118f4bb3ceb835f91c1a694407a31bb7378 upstream.

The sys_vendor / product_name are somewhat generic unfortunately, so this
may lead to some false positives. But nomux usually does no harm, where as
not having it clearly is causing problems on the Avatar AVIU-145A6.
