Hi Jiri,

well, we tried yesterday to make all those things working, but the
Haswell platform I was able to have access was not very cooperative.
So I wasn't able to test the whole autodetection mechanism through
ACPI (I even not managed to communicate with the various HID over i2c
devices that were available to test).

However, Mika managed to test this ACPI stuff, and he is able to
retrieve the HID descriptor address. Given that, I think it's safe to
include it right now. There will still be the last point with the
gpios, but it will come when someone get access to a device presenting
this feature.
