Just to clarify a little bit on the issue.
Although hid_ctrl() does not care the return value of hid_input_report(),
the issue is within hid_input_report(). In drivers/hid/hid-core.c:1317
where raw_event() is called, if return is non-zero, the following call of
hid_report_raw_event() is skipped. This call is needed to have the
in-kernel struct updated with the actual feature report from device.
