[PATCH 0/2] Add a skeleton module to perform a basic initialization on certain USB devices

From: Michal MalÃ

This mini series adds a simple skeleton module whose only purpose is to bring
devices that at first appear as a generic USB device into another mode that
can be handled by a more specific subsystem.

This patch was originally requested by Dmitry, reasoning that loading the
entire xpad module just to switch a Logitech G920 wheel into HID mode is
excessive and does not make much sense.

The module can be extended to handle any other USB device that might require
such a switch.
