Subject: [PATCH v3] i2c: i801: blacklist Host Notify on HP EliteBook G3 850

The HP EliteBook G3 850 has a weird bug where a subsequent cold boot
hangs while plugged in if Linux enables the Host Notify features of
i2c-i801.  The cold boot hang depends on how the system boots.  It does
not hang on UEFI Grub text boot or legacy Grub text boot.  But it does
hang on legacy Grub graphical boot and Intel Boot Agent PXE text boot.
Booting unplugged is not affected.

Disabling the Host Notify feature with disable_feature=0x20 works around
the bug, so automatically do so based on DMI information.
