My change is very unlikely to produce such problems. It changes calculation of
axes resolution at the time the report descriptor is processed. The results of
the calculation are not used by the kernel, AFAIK, but only by userspace
drivers. The results should not be used to affect the interactions with the
device, but only the interpretation of the reports (again, in userspace), and
even that is barely done currently.

Please try reverting that particular commit and see if it affects the
behavior.

Sincerely,
Nick
