I like the proposed changes, but I want to ensure stable kernel releases
aren't left out of the fix for hid-magicmouse. I don't know the best way
forward, but here's one possibility:

1. Apply my patch to manually set the buffer size hint
2. It gets sent to stable trees due to the 'Cc: stable@kernel.org' line
3. Apply Jeffrey's patches, including a reversion of my buffer size hint

Obviously the extra application and reversion is odd, but this seems the
easiest way forward given that the patches already exist and can be
applied without issue.

Thanks,

-- Chase
