As originator of the "old" 0419:0001 IrDA driver parts had a short look at it:
- Merging with old code looks OK. Tested with old 0419:0001 (184) device, still functional.
- 0419:0600 not yet known in usb.ids, might be worth a contribution
- As you merged in a new device, and for explaining why this handling was added, my suggestion is to adapt the existing comments, e.g.:

* This driver supports several HID devices:
* [0419:0001] Samsung IrDA remote controller (reports as Cypress USB Mouse).
* There are several variants:
* 1. 184 byte report descriptor
* [0419:0600] Creative Desktop Wireless 6000 keyboard/mouse combo
* Several key mappings used from the consumer usage page
* deviate from the USB HUT 1.12 standard.

Of course some HID maintainer should also review it, for general policy.
