[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/2] hw/usb/dev-hid: Make usb-tablet work with OS

This series makes the Qemu usb-tablet work correctly with OS X/macOS guests 
without the need for a special guest driver.

 * The usb-tablet should not have a boot protocol of 2. Other OSes seem to 
ignore this, but the IOHIDFamily driver stack chokes on it for anything but 
conventional (relative motion) mice.
 * A "mac_compat" boolean option is added to the usb-tablet, which changes its 
report descriptor to specify a usage of 0x02 (mouse) instead of 0x01 (pointer). 
This is required for correct operation in the Mac HID driver stack.


v1 -> v2:
 * v1 Thread was "[PATCH] hw/usb/dev-hid: add a Mac guest compatibility option 
to usb-tablet"
 * Always apply the boot protocol (bInterfaceProtocol) change to usb-tablet, 
not just when the Mac compatibility option is active. The original value of 
0x02 was determined to be incorrect according to the spec anyway.
 * As the boot protocol change is permanent, separate interface and device 
descriptor constants for the Mac/non-Mac variants of the tablet are no longer 
required, and have been removed.

  hw/usb/dev-hid: set bInterfaceProtocol to 0x00 for usb-tablet
  hw/usb/dev-hid: add a usb-tablet Mac guest compatibility option
