/dev/usb/hid is used to interact with USB HIDs in IOS57, 58 and 59.

It is very similar to /dev/usb/ven and other v5 interfaces. Some ioctl handlers are identical to USB_VEN. Both rely on /dev/usb/usb for most actions.


Handles for USB_HID function exactly the same as for USB_VEN.

Internal device structure

HID has an additional member at the end of the device structure that seems to be used for keeping track of ongoing transfers.
