Unfortunately this quirk will not make the device mentioned in the commit
work on its own.

This fix was an additional fix on top of another more fundamental fix
which made the device, and others like it, operational. This fix was
included in commit:

Valtteri Heikkilä (1):
      HID: reject input outside logical range only if null state is set

This patch does not appear in your shortlog for this submission and it
doesn't appear when I search linux-stable as of v3.16.47.

Additionally, the following patch might also be helpful in ensuring
the correct operation of the aforementioned device (and other devices
like it):

Tomasz Kramkowski (1):
      HID: clamp input to logical range if no null state

However, if the above patches are not appropriate for backporting
to stable then I have absolutely nothing against my patch not being
backported either. My patch alone will not make the device operate in
a useful manner.

Thank you for considering my patch for the 3.16 stable tree and have a
nice day,

Tomasz Kramkowski
