Drivers which had exposed this delay in pointer function but have
compensated for the issue in userspace are likely see the problem of
double delay when the update happens.
I Don't know what is the best way to communicate that issue is fixed in
kernel and usersapce compensation isn't required.

But more likely I think the delay was just getting left out and there
wouldn't have been a compensation in userspace.

Thanks,
