Linux 3.20 To Support New HID Hardware, Improve Logitech HID++ Support
The HID subsystem work for Linux 3.20 includes improvements to the Logitech HID++ protocol implementation, support for composite RMI devices, a new driver for the BETOP force feedback controller, new hardware support in the Wacom driver, and various fixes. The fixes and new device ID additions are "all over the place" for HID drivers.
The new Wacom driver support is for the Cintiq 27QHD, the Lenovo HID driver adds a sensitivity control to compact keyboards, and the Microsoft HID driver adds support for the Japanese Surface Type Cover 3.
More details on the HID update for the Linux 3.20 kernel merge window can be found via the pull request by Jiri Kosina.
