Please check if the parameter is included in /etc/modprobe.d/local (I expect 

If not, try passing i8042.noloop=1 instead (as you yourself indicated in the 
other BR :-).
That should result in the parameter being added in /etc/modprobe.d/local. I 
have just tested this, and this works for me:
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/local
# [some comments]
options i8042 noloop=1

However, I'm not sure if that is sufficient in this case as i8042 support is 
probably compiled into the kernel. If that does not work, please let us 
know and we'll see if we can improve the handling of parameters for modules 
that are compiled in.

(You can of course also test whether having the option in modprobe.d on your 
installed system: create the file and temporarily remove the option from 
the grub boot line.)

Should not be related. It's also missing in the kernel documentation (in
Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt). You may want to add that in the 
upstream bugreport.
