    Hi Vincent,

    yes, the device is messed up, but it shouldn't have any consequences for
    you - the HID driver is able to correctly handle that, so as soon as we
    don't need to add any extra quirks for such device, everything should be
    fine. I have removed the WARN_ON from the code in my tree. I think we
    still don't want users to add quirks for such broken devices (as it would
    collide with hid_blakclist[] terminator), so I have left the initial
    condition in usbhid_modify_dquirk() untouched.

    USB HID: don't warn on idVendor == 0

    It turns out that there are broken devices out there that incorrectly
    report VID/PID as 0x000, see

    Therefore we should not confuse users by dumping warnings and stacktraces
    in such situation. It is not possible to add quirks for such horribly
    broken devices, but currently that's not needed.
