The core of the problem lies with the dual semantics of hid_parse_report(), which is therefore split into two functions. As a consequence, the hid core can handle the rebind case internally, with no changes to the drivers. Out-of-tree drivers will work fine as long as they operate in the same way as the in-kernel drivers. The first two patches are bug fixes found in the process. I am hoping for some test feedback on those. The third patch is the main one.Hi Henrik, thanks a lot for looking into this. I will look into the patches in more detail tomorrow. I am now just adding Nikolai to CC, as he was the first one to bring this up and actually has a driver that exposed the fact that just freeing/reinstatiating rdesc is not enough.
Thanks Henrik, Jiri! I'll be testing this as soon as I can. Sincerely, Nick -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-input" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
