User reports the issue now occurs in GRUB too so it looks like a
hardware issue. User also reports the keyboard on the laptop has been
previously damaged due to drops.

  i8042 generating thousands of spurious keypress interrupts

Bug description:
  i8042 generating thousands of spurious keypress interrupts

  I am having an issue where the + key is repeating in all text fields
  when I am logged in and before logged in.  Seems to happen as soon as
  I get to any login screen command line or GUI too.  I don't think this
  happens before then but could be wrong.  This is annoying but seems to
  also have stopped a few times but will come back out of the blue.

  Beyond that, I have popped the key off and cleaned under there with no
  luck.  I have also used the mainline kernel and still having issues.
  Last, the repeating key press is unclicked in settings.
