Hi Henrik,

is the mouse not working at all with standard HID driver?

I'd prefer to postpone merging this patch until bcm5974 hits mainline if the device works in a limited way with standard HID driver, so that we don't introduce regression.

If the device doesn't work with HID driver at all though, it is probably perfectly fine to merge it right away. Please let me know, I have no knowledge about this particular device.

Thanks a lot,
