Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jikos/hid
Pull HID subsystem updates from Jiri Kosina: 1) Support for HID over I2C bus has been added by Benjamin Tissoires. ACPI device discovery is still in the works. 2) Support for Win8 Multitiouch protocol is being added, most work done by Benjamin Tissoires as well 3) EIO/ERESTARTSYS is fixed in hiddev/hidraw, fixes by Andrew Duggan and Jiri Kosina 4) ION iCade driver added by Bastien Nocera 5) Support for a couple new Roccat devices has been added by Stefan Achatz 6) HID sensor hubs are now auto-detected instead of having to list all the VID/PID combinations in the blacklist array 7) other random fixes and support for new device IDs * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jikos/hid: (65 commits) HID: i2c-hid: add mutex protecting open/close race Revert "HID: sensors: add to special driver list" HID: sensors: autodetect USB HID sensor hubs HID: hidp: fallback to input session properly if hid is blacklisted HID: i2c-hid: fix ret_count check HID: i2c-hid: fix i2c_hid_get_raw_report count mismatches HID: i2c-hid: remove extra .irq field in struct i2c_hid HID: i2c-hid: reorder allocation/free of buffers HID: i2c-hid: fix memory corruption due to missing hid declaration HID: i2c-hid: remove superfluous include HID: i2c-hid: remove unneeded test in i2c_hid_remove HID: i2c-hid: i2c_hid_get_report may fail HID: i2c-hid: also call i2c_hid_free_buffers in i2c_hid_remove HID: i2c-hid: fix error messages HID: i2c-hid: fix return paths HID: i2c-hid: remove unused static declarations HID: i2c-hid: fix i2c_hid_dbg macro HID: i2c-hid: fix checkpatch.pl warning HID: i2c-hid: enhance Kconfig HID: i2c-hid: change I2C name ...

+A few EV_MSC codes have special meaning:
