Then what are those must-have features? From what I can read, only the
reflashing firmware is part of it. Unless there is something else, I
really don't understand why you can't have a hid-weidatech driver that
could handle the specific bits while leaving the rest to i2c-hid.

Also, I am not sure if your driver doesn't interfere with i2c-hid as you
are claiming the device through the ACPI ID "WDHT0001" but there should
be some PNP IDs "PNP0C50" if it were declared as i2c-hid. If both are
set, then the fact your driver is picked up seems to be pure luck: there
will be a race between the probe of your driver and i2c-hid, which is
not something you want.

If there are some issues with i2c-hid, I'd like also to know them
because if we fix them for you there is a high chance other vendors
will benefit from those fixes too.
