You are missing one bit in the HID specification. The report
descriptor is both a stack and a machine with states. The 'usage page'
can be considered as a 'register' that needs to be associated to the
'usage' to provide the final usage.
For example, Usage Page 0x01 (Generic Desktop) plus Usage 0x30 gives
you the "X" usage.
While Usage Page 0x0d (digitizer) plus the same Usage 0x30 gives you
the "Tip Pressure".

So here, there is nothing wrong.

The stack part concerns the collections. You open a collection type
(physical, or application), and you can close it.

So here, the problem is that the 2 reports with Ids 1 and 2 are part
of the same application collection "mouse" and should be tied to the
same input device (at least that is how I thought of the code).
Unfortunately, the bug makes that these 2 reports each have an input
node, and this is where things start to mess up.

Cheers,
Benjamin
