Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2017 Gen5 Touchpad Issue - Linux

Anyone have any updates? I'm seeing this on Linux with the following error in dmesg:

 

[  584.523897] psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1

Last time I saw something like this was when I opened my W520 and didn't attach my touchpad cable correctly...

Excerpt from the original post describing the issue:

"The pad works fine for a few minutes after restart, then randomly it starts to have some sort of issue where it starts freezing up each time you lift your finger and put it down again. The tap to click feature no longer functions, and the cursor jumps around randomly as well. These problems go away after a restart, but will start again after ~5-10 minutes of use. It makes the computer pretty much unusable and is extremely frustrating."
