Hi Henrik,

Reading the time just once and applying it as the timestamp to an
entire frame is very nice.
However, is it ever possible for the SYN_REPORT to get delayed until
the next batch of input_values, therefore breaking the assumption that
the SYN_REPORT timestamp applies to the rest of the input_values for
its frame?

Also, bonus points if the input driver could set this input frame
timestamp based on when it first saw a hardware interrupt rather then
when evdev gets around to sending the frame to userspace. This could
potentially remove a lot of the timing jitter userspace sees when
computing ballistics based on input event timestamps.

Thanks!
-Daniel
