Hi, the previous implementation used a linked list to store the device configuration (at this point it was just the operating range, but I have plans for further expansion, I guess Simon's LEDs patch could use that too). Searching through the list every time the user adjusted the range wasn't exactly fast, particularly because the list used kobj name as the ID. I originally opted for that solution because I didn't want to mess with the code of the whole hid-lg driver. This patch takes advantage of the changes introduced in my patches from 2011/04/02. lg4ff now calls hid_get/set_drvdata() to read or store device configuration. The way I understand it, this is how all HID drivers store their private data. Since J. Slabý complained about unnecessary uninitialized_var() macros, I'll update the patch to remove them. Michal M.
