Hmm, if A4Tech is using a reserved usage, we shouldn't fix this in
hid-input.c but in hid-a4tech instead.
Because you won't know when someone else in the HID consortium will
remap this usage to some other random axis, and your mouse will be
broken again.

How about you add a .input_mapping callback in hid-a4tech and map this
usage there to your needs? This way you will be sure that such a
situation will not happen again.

Cheers,
Benjamin
