Hi Michael,

thanks for the patch. A couple of requests before I can apply it:

- please provide the patch in-line in the e-mail body if your client 
  doesn't corrupt patches. It's eaiser to review it that way
- please add your Signed-off-by: line as described in 
- don't forget to add the VID/PID to hid_ignore_list[], otherwise the 
  device <-> driver binding will not work properly
