jaunty jackalope Ubuntu 9.04 keyboard and trackpad freeze at startup

I hit this issue on my Dell Vostro 1310 after an upgrade to Ubuntu 9.04 aka Jaunty Jackalope - amd64. When I boot, most often, the onboard keyboard and mouse are dead. Most people reset and when it comes up again, it works. I had found the workaround in suspend/resume of the system. But honestly, it was a pain.

Finally found this bug:

The workaround mentioned there viz. adding the options
i8042.reset i8042.nomux i8042.nopnp i8042.noloop

at the end of the list of kernel parameters in

works for me.
