Adding Marcin Tolysz to CC, he is interested in a mechanism to
override the hid_descriptor from userspace dynamically.

Marcin, now that this 'report_descriptor' sysfs attribute has been
accepted as read-only in mainline, maybe you could implement the .write
method for it if your firmware approach to override hid descriptors
would not be accepted. Just pointing at an alternative option, not sure
if it is the best one.

Regards,
Antonio
