It took me a while but I finally got your point. hidinput_connect
assigned two different input nodes for the input and output reports
even if they share the same report ID. X believes there are 2 distinct
keyboards and do not change the LED of the one without the LED
declared :)

This is definitively something we should fix in hid-input.c. IMO, the
for loop in hidinput_configure() has been wild for too long and it is
really hard to get what it does.
I'll try to put something into it.

Thanks. Replaying the report shows that there are a lot of input nodes
created with an UNKNOWN name. This has to be cleaned up. I have
quickly sketched a patch for that so you don't need to care about it
right now.

Cheers,
Benjamin
