SubjectRe: [PATCH] HID: Add support for 146b:0902 Bigben Interactive Kids' gamepad
Hi Roderick,
Hi Benjamin,

thanks for the review!

Okay, will check with that.

The main reason for the fixup was to cleanup the output part of the
descriptor, as the device's original descriptor seemed to use
nonsensical/undefined "Usage" values.

Those two axis remappings were the only two necessary. The rest of the
mappings are fine and look okay when compared to other drivers that do
not fully adhere to the gamepad spec (e.g. xpad.c also doesn't map my
XBox-Controller's D-Pad to NORTH/EAST/SOUTH/WEST but instead to HAT0 in
the same way as this device does).

I had assumed that using a descriptor fixup and leaving the actual work
to the standard driver was cleaner than meddling with the incoming data
in a mapping function.

Actually, I was researching if I could fix the descriptor so that no
LED/FF-specific code is necessary, but my knowledge of HID was too
limited to achieve that.

Ah, thank you.

Nah. Don't worry! :-D

Thanks & kind regards,
