    SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 0/6] hid: Introduce device groups
    From
    Hi Henrik,

    Thanks for handling this. I still won't have the time to review this
    patch set before early may as I'm out of my office till then. Also
    sorry for not answering the previous mails, I did not had a reliable
    internet connection during my holidays.

    Thanks,
    Benjamin
