I tried to observe the [DLL063E] kernel thread on my laptop with powertop, and 
can't reproduce the same value.
I keep moving my finger on touchpad as fast as possible for a whole powertop 
refresh cycle and got the max values I can observe.
Usage Events/s Category Description
587 us/s 0.6 Process [irq/39-DLLL063E:]

The events counter on your laptop is too high, that's the problem.
Could you do the following commands and attach the following log?
1. dmesg > dmesg.log
2. the ftrace log
   sudo su
   cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing
   echo function > current_tracer
   echo :mod:hid_rmi > set_ftrace_filter  # please don't touch the touchpad 
after enter this command
   cp trace /tmp/trace.no_touch
   # a single tap on touchpad
   cp trace /tmp/trace.tap
3. attach dmesg.log, /tmp/trace.no_touch, and /tmp/trace.tap
