Cool. The resolution of the hid-core.c conflict is in fact better than
what I proposed. It should not conflict with Jiri's pull request IMO. And
when the two branches will hit Linus' we can then un-split hid-rmi and
wacom processes.

I also noticed few differences. Some of them you obviously made, I am
fine with them BTW, and some other I think because your current next
branch already has some wacom patches queued. I guess you will handle
this just fine, as usual, but I'll try to keep an eye on it just in case
git messed up the merge and forgot one branch.

Thanks again Dmitry. And sorry for have pushed you regarding that.
