[Android] Application detects gamepad only after its input was made



Reproduction steps:
1) Take any Android device and connect any gamepad to it
2) Download and open user's attached project
3) Build and run "Man" scene on device with connected gamepad
-- Using ADB notice that there's no Debug.Log() message displayed
4) Press any button on gamepad or move any joystick
-- Notice that "Connected" was printed

Expected result: "Connected" should be printed without pressing any button on joystick; it should be printed as soon as app is launched.

Reproduced with:
5.5.0f1, 5.5.0p3, 5.6.0b2

Unable to reproduce with: 5.4.4f1

LG G3, Android 5.0

    This is only part of the problem. If you disconnect a controller, it does not disappear from the list. If you then re-connect the controller and press a button to activate it, it appears as yet another copy of the same controller in the list. You can repeat this over and over to build a massive list of phantom controllers.
