    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.
