With hid-microsoft and hid-input the LED works, but not if you set the
HID_QUIRK_MULTI_INPUT. The hid-multitouch driver uses that quirk by
default but it is needed to get both the keyboard and touchpad as
different inputs so X11 drivers can pick them up independently. Also,
the hid-multitouch driver works well not only because it handles the
touchpad fields correctly but also because it initializes the device
in multitouch mode (Input mode feature report [1]) instead of mouse
mode.
The LED output report is mapped separately because of a combination of
how reports are traversed in hidinput_connect in hid-input.c and how
are mapped to new inputs with the HID_QUIRK_MULTI_INPUT. That part
seems dangerous to modify without breaking compatibility with other
devices. Maybe adding a different quirk? I don't know what the
protocol is in those cases.

Yes, here's the report [2], it is in html.

Yes, I meant "Touchpad".
