Subject[36/98] HID: fixup quirk for NCR devices
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

commit 5b915d9e6dc3d22fedde91dfef1cb1a8fa9a1870 upstream.

NCR devices are terminally broken by design -- they claim themselves to contain
proper input applications in their HID report descriptor, but behave very badly
if treated in standard way.

According to NCR developers, the devices get confused when queried for reports
in a standard way, rendering them unusable.

NCR is shipping application called "RPSL" that can be used to drive these
devices through hiddev, under the assumption that in-kernel driver doesn't
perform initial report query.
If it does, neither in-kernel nor hiddev-based driver can operate with these
devices any more.

Introduce a quirk that skips the report query for all NCR devices. The previous
NOGET quirk was wrong and had been introduced because I misunderstood the nature
of brokenness of these devices.
