[Bug 1574102] Re: Regression (constant vibration of device) in xpad driver in Ubuntu 16.04


@njmcphail Thanks for sharing your input over on github. Hopefully
paroj's new fix[1] works better!

I won't be able to test it out until next weekend but I thought I'd
mention its existence here so the ubuntu guys can add it (since they
backported the the regression in #1564901)

  Regression (constant vibration of device) in xpad driver in Ubuntu

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading to 16.04, I cannot launch Saints Row 2 or 3 from Steam
  without constant vibration from my Xbox360 controller. The symptoms
  are the same as outlined in https://github.com/paroj/xpad/issues/27.
  (I believe that github user submits xpad patches to upstream.) If I
  compile the f23507b version from that git repo, the problem resolves.
  This was not an issue on 15.10.
