uhid driver for Super Nintendo gamepads

Authored by on May 10 2018, 9:30 PM.



This patch adds a new uhid usb driver for Super Nintendo gamepads. These devices seem to be a bit special and can not be handled by the normal uhid driver or uhidd.
Two known devices are added to the list, one of them is confirmed working with FS-UAE on amd64 12-CURRENT.

This code was originally written in 2013 by Michael Terrell and can be found at this repo:
It has been cleanup and added to base tree in 2018 by Johannes Lundberg.

TODO: Maybe add support for evdev if it makes sense.
