SubjectRe: [PATCH] Fix some ARM builds due to HID brokenness

Hi Russell,

well, the location itself was a subject to various discussions. At the
end, drivers/hid won against drivers/input/hid, because, as Marcel
correctly pointed out, in case of embedded systems there might be a need
to have an abstraction for non-input devices and then we don't want to
bundle it to tightly to input. There is no such implementation yet, but
moving this code around is quite painful, so we don't want to do it more
than once.

This help text has been there for ages, it was duplicated from previous
help text from usb hid implementation, but you are right that the wording
might confuse someone. Will change it eventually, thanks.
