parentHID: Handle driver-specific device descriptor in core (diff)
HID: Add device group to modalias
HID devices are only partially presented to userland. Hotplugged devices emit events containing a modalias based on the basic bus, vendor and product entities. However, in practise a hid device can depend on details such as a single usb interface or a particular item in a report descriptor. This patch adds a device group to the hid device id, and broadcasts it using uevent and the device modalias. The module alias generation is modified to match. As a consequence, a device with a non-zero group will be processed by the corresponding group driver instead of by the generic hid driver.
