The exports and hid_is_using_ll_driver were actually introduced in the
patch immediately preceding the change to wacom_sys.c which triggered
this error (making it the "first", not "last" user).

That said, after reading through the patch discussion[1] again, I see
that my memory is faulty: per-transport functions were *not*
dismissed. Rather, a more-generic function that is fed the
hid_ll_driver of interest was suggested instead. Given that these
exports are liable to cause this same issue for future users, perhaps
providing per-transport functions is the better option after all.

I could accept either the strict dependency you originally suggested
or a modified header, but don't see much reason for the former.
Checking if a HID device is using a particular transport shouldn't
require that that transport even be available IMO, but that's
ultimately not my call...

Jiri? Benjamin?
