I managed to boot into the older kernel that I still had in the grub menu 
(4.9.0-1-amd64). It was difficult because, as I said, the keyboard works badly 
in GRUB as well, but at least it somehow works, I just have to wait tens of 
seconds after a keypress.

Anyhow, it booted in 4.9.0-1-amd64, but it showed the same issue: keyboard and 
trackpad don't work. So it doesn't seem to be kernel related.

Now I have rebooted again in 4.9.0-2-amd64 version 4.9.18-1 (2017-03-30). 
Apparenlty the only way I can restore functioning of the integrated keyboard 
and trackpad is by booting up with an external usb keyboard and an external 
usb mouse plugged in. I have the usual issues in grub and during bootup, but 
when I get the login screen, after 30 seconds or so the external usb devices 
get detected, and also the integrated keyboard and trackpad get detected so 
everything starts working.
