      HID: add phys and name ioctls to hidraw · 9188e79e
      Jiri Kosina authored
      The hiddev interface provides ioctl() calls which can be used
      to obtain phys and raw name of the underlying device.
      Add the corresponding support also into hidraw.

      HID: struct device - replace bus_id with dev_name(), dev_set_name() · 6bbe586f
      Kay Sievers authored
      This patch is part of a larger patch series which will remove
      the "char bus_id[20]" name string from struct device. The device
      name is managed in the kobject anyway, and without any size
      limitation, and just needlessly copied into "struct device".
      To set and read the device name dev_name(dev) and dev_set_name(dev)
      must be used. If your code uses static kobjects, which it shouldn't
      do, "const char *init_name" can be used to statically provide the
      name the registered device should have. At registration time, the
      init_name field is cleared, to enforce the use of dev_name(dev) to
      access the device name at a later time.
      We need to get rid of all occurrences of bus_id in the entire tree
      to be able to enable the new interface. Please apply this patch,
      and possibly convert any remaining remaining occurrences of bus_id.
      We want to submit a patch to -next, which will remove bus_id from
      "struct device", to find the remaining pieces to convert, and finally
      switch over to the new api, which will remove the 20 bytes array
      and does no longer have a size limitation.

      HID: automatically call usbhid_set_leds in usbhid driver · 08ef08ee
      Alan Stern authored
      This patch (as1146c) makes usbhid automatically call usbhid_set_leds()
      for any device that supports the keyboard boot protocol.
      In theory this should be perfectly safe.  BIOSes send the LED output
      report as part of their normal device initialization, so any keyboard
      device supporting the boot protocol has to be able to handle it.
      As a side effect, the hid-dell and hid-bright drivers are no longer
      needed, and the Logitech keyboard driver can be removed from hid-lg.

      When computing the maximal buffer size needed, we must take into
      account that not only input reports can be numbered.
