I'll give it a shot.

I hadn't tried it yet since I wasn't sure if that was the intended way to
start it up within the HID framework since none of the other drivers
submitted the urb.

Also, submitting the urb requires the usbhid_device structure. Since the
usbhid_device structure is defined in usbhid.h, and usbhid.h isn't
installed with the kernel headers I wasn't sure if there was a better way
to do it (raw events, input mapping or something along those lines).
