Decided to give this a try... I'm totally new to manjaro/arch so it took me a while to figure out how to pull down the kernel package and recompile it (i'm sure i'm still not doing it the 'right' way, just ran makepkg with --nobuild, commented out the section from your patch, then ran makepkg with --noextract).

That was a couple hours ago.  It's been years since I've tried to compile the linux kernel, forgot how long it takes, especially when your single-core performance isn't that impressive.  Though I have to say, I'm pretty impressed that it's not affecting overall system performance (i'm writing this while it's compiling in the background).  I'll update when I'm able to test the newly compiled kernel.

This problem is so weird.... I'm noticing that while I have this window (Chromium) active, the problem does not show up for the trackpad, though there's still a delay from the keyboard.  When I click to a different window, it comes back.  That's not consistent, though, since I normally have the problem *constantly* when I'm using a browser (chromium or FF), as that's where I primarily use a pointer.  Smile

Clarification - as soon as I posted the message, the problem came right back in Chromium.  Now that I'm composing a message again, it's gone (for the trackpad).  Very strange, though it might make sense to someone who has more knowledge re: linux GUI/display stuff.
