[VR]EarlyUpdate.XRUpdate's CPU usage increases by about 2.4ms every 10minutes if the Unity Player isn't focused on



Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new project
2. Enable VR
3. Build for standalone with "Development Build" and "Auto-Connect Profiler"
4. Run the build with an HMD attached
5. Open the profiler window
6. Make sure it is connected to the player
7. Leave the player running while unfocused for at least 20 minutes

Result: CPU usage spikes start occurring, player becomes laggy and continues to become worse as time goes on

    I've also replicated the issue from 2018.2.0 onwards, independent of Oculus or SteamVR HMD's.

    Fix urgently needed, as we tend to run without exe focus often as well!

    I was unable to reproduce this in 2018.1.1 and 2018.1.9, but did reproduce in 2018.2.0, so it seems like it was introduced in 2018.2

    Most of the system may not support the upgraded version as these may not compatible with the system version. To resolve these issues may contact with that will guide them to overcome these situations.

    I am also getting this problem, setting executable focus back to our app eliminates the lag but it is not a good solution.

    This is a bad bug for our kind of application (Enterprise VR where we often have a VR client and a normal client with GUI running on the same PC, so the VR client isn't focused.

    We have found these repro steps also happen in 2018.3.2f1 and 2018.2.19f1

    Hope it gets fixed soon

    This problem must be a show stopper for some kind of games.
