Hi Nehal

and thank you for the feedback.

Regarding the raw_request / request, I think the "raw" here is meant to
indicate, that the implementation is expected to write "raw bytes" [1]
into a buffer rather than handling a "struct hid_report", which is
exactly what the get_feature_report() and get_input_report() from the
original patch seem to be intended to do.
However it should be easy to migrate this to ".report", since it'd
probably look a lot like __hid_request() [2], which is currently doing
the magic automatically for me.
Furthermore a ll_driver needs a raw_request implementation anyways as
it's being tested for in hid_add_device() [3].

Regarding the validation on your side: Of course! I do in no way want
to undermine your work on this in any way. I'm just offering what I've
learned so far and what is working for me. If you find parts of it
worth taking into a refactored version for upstream, awesome. If you
don't agree with other parts, that's fine, too. I'm quite new to this
and eager to learn. Also I am in no rush. Good things take time.

In case you're missing my patch on, I decided to
further develop the driver in a forked linux source tree [4].

It's on the branch amd-sfh. You can just diff to the master branch to
get the entire patch. The changed files are still under
drivers/hid/amd-sfh-hid and Documentation/hid respectively.

You'll find that in the meantime I did some more work / learning and
implemented some rudimentary IRQ handling.

Kind regards,
