Let me explain the situation a little bit better from our angle. These
devices exist and from the Linux community perspective of course they
should see some level of support. And as I said since this is PS3
generation I don't have much of a concern.

Where it becomes tricky for any company in our situation is the
support side. We don't know these devices and don't have access to
datasheets or anything, but when such code is in our "official driver"
it means we have to involve them in our QA process and support them in
some manner (kind of legitimizing their existence as well). We now
support this driver in a large capacity (pretty much all mobile
devices will start shipping it) it puts challenges on our partners
(not a big issue since just PS3 right now).

As you can see this creates an awkward situation. I'm sure there other
such devices as well e.g. counterfeit Logitech keyboards, USB serial
adapters and other periperhals with similar challenges. In an ideal
world the support would live in another driver, but since in case of
this "fake" PS3 controller it "share" our product / vendor ids it is
tricky. At this point there is not a strong enough case yet to augment
the "hid-quirks" to do so, but perhaps if it became a serious issue
(e.g. for newer controllers) maybe we need to think of something.

Thanks,
Roderick
