Subject: [PATCH] HID: magicmouse: do not set up autorepeat

Neither the trackpad, nor the mouse want input core to generate autorepeat
events for their buttons, so let's reset the bit (as hid-input sets it for
these devices based on the usage vendor code).

Reported-by: Yariv <>

Jiri, Benjamin, this is fixes jitter in event packets that became
apparent when we moved the point at which timestamps are being
generated, so maybe mark for stable?
