Looks like Fedora doesn't have usbhid compiled as module. I looked
hid-quirks.c file and there was only one af9015 device blacklisted
15a4:9016. I have 15a4:9015, 15a4:9016 and 13d3:3237 devices and no

How can I disable HID layer?

In my understanding the cause of the remote problem is chipset bug which
sets USB2.0 polling interval to 4096ms. Therefore HID remote does not
work at all or starts repeating. It is possible to implement remote as
polling from the driver which works very well. But HID problem still
remains. I have some hacks in my mind to test to kill HID. One is to
configure HID wrongly to see if it stops outputting characters. Other
way is try to read remote codes directly from the chip memory.

But all in all, your patch does not break anything, it is safe to add.
It could be still nice to know if there is better alternatives. And
there is surely few other devices having HID remote - are those also
