Subject: Re: [PATCH 4/4] HID: wacom: do not shout an error on LED control

I'm not super comfortable with hiding this error. If the tablet reacts
appropriately, I wouldn't think we'd get an EPIPE. Although its not
fatal, it still might be a symptom of something deeper...

Now instead of four in the eights place /
you’ve got three, ‘Cause you added one  /
(That is to say, eight) to the two,     /
But you can’t take seven from three,    /
So you look at the sixty-fours....
