read carefully ;-)

These are not errors in software. We are not correcting bugs,
but are telling our users:
- We know that on some hardware this feature has a bad interaction
  with hardware.
- So we put to you (user) the burden to discovery bad hardware
  and telling us.  We will correct it in future. BTW we try harder
  not to let you to disable such feature. So wait next release!

so these are real bug reporting?

BTW polling is not needed on correct software. It is a workaround
for other (but most common) hardwares.

for this reason I think waiting bug report is not a solution
but only a workaround.
