I fully agree. Lets move and split the transports now and start the work
on top of it. My only concern is to have a clean Git tree to the full
history of HID changes stay intact and will trackable. Some quirk
decisions and other stuff is not obvious and I assume will never be when
it comes to broken HID devices.

So do you have pending HID patches. If yes, please sync them with Linus
and Jiri can setup a clean tree for the move.
