Subject[PATCH] HID: logitech-dj: do not directly call hid_output_raw_report() during probe
hid_output_raw_report() makes a direct call to usb_control_msg(). However,
some USB3 boards have shown that the usb device is not ready during the
.probe(). This blocks the entire usb device, and the paired mice, keyboards
are not functional. The dmesg output is the following:

[ 11.912287] logitech-djreceiver 0003:046D:C52B.0003: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Device [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:14.0-2/input2
[ 11.912537] logitech-djreceiver 0003:046D:C52B.0003: logi_dj_probe:logi_dj_recv_query_paired_devices error:-32
[ 11.912636] logitech-djreceiver: probe of 0003:046D:C52B.0003 failed with error -32

Relying on the scheduled call to .hid_hw_request() fixes the problem.

Hi guys,

this bug has taken too long to be solved. I managed to figure out the root cause
recently thanks to the work of Jelle Foks in lp#1039143.

Jiri, I based this fix on top of your for-3.10/logitech branch.
It *will* failed to build when you will merge it with the branch
for-3.10/hid-driver-transport-cleanups. This is due to the use of
usbhid_submit_report() instead of hid_hw_request(). The

However, I prefer do it that way so that I can send it to "stable" to fix all
the current releases since 3.2 (I guess only the LTS v3.4 will pick it and the
current 3.8, but distros can then cherry-pick it easily).

Is that ok for you?
