I2c designware controller timed out

This is a solution to the trackpad freezing on Linux laptops where the bug is:

i2c_designware i2c_designware.1: controller timed out

Currently, I have solved the problem by rewriting the following /etc/default/grub line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash ivrs_ioapic[32]=00:14.0 ivrs_ioapic[33]=00:00.1"

Furthermore, super recent Linux kernels cause the same problems even with the above line inserted so I am forcing the use of the second latest kernel installed. For me this is:

5.0.0-27-generic

I am forcing this by editing following following /etc/default/grub line:

GRUB_DEFAULT="1>2"

You can follow this up with a:

sudo update-grub
