SubjectRe: [PATCH] HID: Add support for 146b:0902 Bigben Interactive Kids' gamepad
Hi Hanno,

A few suggestions for your patch based on a quick review (had limited time).

In terms of code style, I noticed a lot of C++ style comments which
are not part of the kernel code style instead use C comments. To check
for potential other issues as well, run your patch through
'scripts/checkpatch.pl'.

I noticed you fixed up reported descriptors a bit to get axes remapped
in a different way. This is reasonable as the default mappings are
often not good. However, I would suggest use the mapping functions
instead (e.g. see hid-sony.c and other drivers). It also allows you to
properly remap buttons as well. I suspect the current button mapping
is all over the place as well. Make sure axis and button mapping
complies to the Linux gamepad spec (see
Documentation/input/gamepad.rst).

Thanks,
Roderick
