Default Mojave kernel_task high increase over time

I've started to notice that over continued mail use of the latest display link driver on Mojave that the kernel_task process CPU utilisation continues to increase and eventually hits a figure that averages between 30-40% during multi-monitor use and 20% without any monitor use.

Uninstalling the DisplayLink drivers and a reboot returns kernel_task to a figure of 1-2% on average.

This process is repeatable over a period of time with multiple connect/disconnects of external monitors.

Anything that can be recommended to resolve this further? Resetting SMC/PRAM does not change the behaviour....the only thing that does is uninstalling the DisplayLink driver.
