[PATCH 1/3] HID: Add HID_CLAIMED_OTHER for non-generic drivers

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

All normal devices that correctly conform to the HID specs are handled by
the hid-input driver. However, for non-standard drivers we often don't
want hid-input to handle them but rather use specific hid drivers. But
hid_connect() requires at least one generic driver to claim the devices.
As hid_hw_start() calls hid_connect() we currently use an ugly workaround
by adding HID_CLAIMED_INPUT to hid->claimed and clear it after
hid_hw_start() again (see hid-picolcd.c for examples).

This adds the HID_CLAIMED_OTHER flag which can be set by device drivers to
tell the hid-core that they handle the device without the need of any
generic driver like hidinput, hiddev or hidraw.
