Subject[PATCH] HID: wacom: fix Bamboo ONE oops
Looks like recent changes in the Wacom driver made the Bamboo ONE crashes.
The tablet behaves as if it was a regular Bamboo device with pen, touch
and pad, but there is no physical pad connected to it.
The weird part is that the pad is still sending events and given that
there is no input node connected to it, we get anull pointer exception.

Hi Jiri,

This fixes the oopses we saw on the Bamboo ONE.
The fedora user is fine, and it appears the sourceforge user too, as the
problems were due to misconfigurations on his end.
