When I have debugging enabled, hundreds of milliseconds.

When I don't have debugging enabled ... it doesn't tell me, but I'm fairly
sure it is several tens of milliseconds and the button press can be quicker
than that.

If it will help I can try to instrument the driver and get some timings.

Well if every driver is buggy....
I don't see how this could be implemented in the input core. And even if it
was, you'd probably need to change each driver to interact with this new
functionality which would be much the same work as changing them to work with
the current functionality....
But maybe I have no imagination - if you can suggest a way that the input core
could support this without changing the drivers, I'm happy to try it out.
Thanks,
