This should be automatically done by proper dev.parent setting of the
corresponding input device, as already mentioned by Dmitry.

Actually even bluetooth HID seems to set up hid->dev correctly in
hidp_setup_hid() and also sets properly dev.parent in hidp_setup_input().

Marcel, what is please the point behind this code in

if (!session->hid) {
session->input = input_allocate_device();
if (!session->input) {
return -ENOMEM;

I suspect that the oops happens during freeing this extra device which is
not allocated inside hid core, but I can't immediately see from the code
what is the exact purpose of this 'extra' input device and why don't the
input devices allocated and registered in hidinput_connect() suffice?
usbhid doesn't need to register any extra input devices, everything is
handled solely in hid-input core.

Seems like it could be triggered by ioctl() with ca->req->rd_size set to
0, but I am not that familiar with the bluetooth code to see it
