Re: Mouse cursor jumping to the left of the screen with native xorg

What's status of this? I still see the jumping mouse cursor after upgrading to 5.0_BETA ...

Can you try the patch from PR port-i386/39299 instead?

Yes, and it seems to fix the problem.

What I've ran was gqmpeg (=mpg123 frontend) and firefox. The former for some FPU intensive application, the latter for GUI. Kernels that I've tried are 4.99.72 from Oct 1st without your patch, and 4.99.73 from Oct 16th with your patch, both on a Toshiba Portege 3440ct with NetBSD's new native and the "savage" driver.

The test case that I've tried while playing music in gqmpeg was to move the mouse cursor across Firefox menues (built-in ones plus items on the toolbar), and with the unpatched kernel the mouse cursor often skipped to the left site of the screen, often into the upper left corner. Booting the new kernel, this jumping does not seem to occur.

Not knowing any further implications of your patch, I'd give it a thumbs up.
