HID report descriptor may reference Physical Descriptor (HID 6.2.3) and
String Descriptor entries (USB 9.6.8, HID E.11).  Physical Descriptor
blob could be another __user buffer + size in uhid_create_req.  String
descriptor should probably be an event for querying strings.

hidraw interface also offers access to Feature Reports, adding events
to send/receive and query (kernel querying uhid client) feature reports
could be of some interest.
