    Please backport. Hope this is the same issue why I can't (crash) play Overcooked 2 (Unity) and Ultimate Chicken horse (Unity) on Linux/SteamOS with two DS4 controllers over bluetooth. As a comparison, Rocket League (Unreal) works perfectly, Portal 2 (Source) works perfectly.

    Can this be fixed on the v2017 LTS branch please?

    v2017.4.16f1 still crashes with this issue.
