touchpad: ratelimit the touch jump tests

In most cases these days touch jumps aren't actually fixable, they don't have
any good heuristics we can employ to remove them. And, luckily, in most cases
it doesn't matter because the users only notice the issue because of the error
message. To avoid spamming the user's log, let's ratelimit it.

When libinput detects a cursor jump it prints a bug warning to the log with
the text **"Touch jump detected and discarded."** and a link to this page.
.. note:: This warning is ratelimited and will stop appearing after a few
times, even if the touchpad jumps continue.
In most cases, this is a bug in the kernel driver and to libinput it appears
that the touch point moves from its previous position. The pointer jump can
usually be seen in the :ref:`libinput record <libinput-record>` output for the device:
