That I fully understand. But I though that the device is so much HID 
standard non-compliant, that even basic functionality is not possible with 
the generic HID driver, and therefore blacklisting it immediately can't do 
any harm. That's what I understood previously. But if this is wrong, and 
the HID code can get at least basic functionality from the device, I will 
revert the blacklist addition.
