+What:          /sys/devices/platform/i8042/.../drift_time
+Date:          Dec, 2014
+KernelVersion: 3.19
+Contact:       linux-in...@vger.kernel.org
+Description:
+               (RW) This parameter controls the period of time to test for a
+               ‘hands off’ condition (i.e. when no force is applied) before a
+               drift (noise) calibration occurs.
+
+               IBM Trackpoints have a feature to compensate for drift by
+               recalibrating themselves periodically. By default, if for 0.5
+               seconds there is no change in position, it's used as the new
+               zero. This duration is too low. Often, the calibration happens
+               when the trackpoint is in fact being used.
