It would be in this scenario. But then I think it also means that
USBHID will incorrectly strip an extra byte of the payload if it's
zero for reports that don't have a report id, right? So maybe the fix
for this is to get rid of payload adjustment in set/send paths in
USBHID and move the adjustment to hidraw?

The call chain in my use case is as follows:

hidraw_ioctl(HIDIOCSFEATURE) -> hid_hw_raw_request() ->
uhid_hid_raw_request() -> uhid_hid_set_report()

I was just mimicking code from USBHID, to make it clear it served the
same purpose, that

buf[0] = rnum;

isn't strictly necessary and could be dropped.
