    media-keys: Show a touchpad-disabled if no touchpad
    When pressing the touchpad button on the keyboard, and
    there's no touchpad present, don't show a wrong state
    for the touchpad status, but always show a "touch disabled"

    mouse: Move "has touchpad" function to common/
    So it can be reused. This also fixes a memory leak in the function.
    We were leaking the device list.
