Comment 6 for bug 1798583


This bug [1] in the Valve github tracker seems to be caused by the hid-steam driver, written by me, introduced in 4.18.

With this driver there is a new input device, which is disabled when the Steam client is running. That is usually harmless, but some games go nuts with that extra device.

I have written a patch, that instead of disabling the device, removes it when Steam is running, and recreates it when Steam is closed.

I have submitted it to LKML a few days ago [2], but it looks like it went through the cracks... It would be great is someone could check it.
