Obviously this is only a problem for the devices with mixed
interfaces, but for those, solution 2) together with specifying the
group as you suggest should work. We can definitely change all devices
in the list, it just was not necessary before (or so I thought).

I suppose what you describe here is how it was working before the
device groups. Ok, I see what to do now. I will be back shortly with a
patch which should make USB_DEVICE_ID_TOPSEED2_PERIPAD_701 work, and
let's take it from there.

Thanks for testing,
