Probably because he didn't know about it, and how would he? I also
didn't know about it, because it didn't exist last I worked on those
joypads.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the XBox One S controller
working over Bluetooth, without success, and I see that you have a
patch for that which you didn't send upstream either:
https://github.com/atar-axis/xpadneo/blob/master/misc/kernel_patches/0001-fix_bluetooth_reconnect.patch

I can imagine that a large portion of the driver can be integrated in
the existing XBox pad driver, with each feature added in individual
patches.

If I get the time, there are good chances I will send a patch to
integrate the battery reporting in the existing driver at least, and
then add support for missing buttons if there's a problem there (I see
that mentioned in the README).

"Trigger Force Feedback" is likely something that would need to be
integrated at a lower level, this is probably not something we'd want
to have replicated in each driver.

Cheers
