ps2port: Disable keyboard/mouse prior to resetting ps2 controller

If one of the ps2 ports is enabled prior to the ps2 controller reset
then it is possible a device event (eg, key press or mouse move) could
be mistaken for the controller reset response code.  This would result
in a failure and the keyboard would be disabled during the boot.
Always disabling the keyboard and mouse prior to reset ensures that
the controller reset return code can be read properly.
