I would recommend you use libusb in userland to do this. Then you get all the
information you need for the ID-match and more. If that is not desirable, we
can add that information like an IOCTL. usbconfig show_ifdrv might also give
you some clues.
Currently the libusb20 interface is the most stable.
Doesn't the linux-js joystick driver already have a parser for HID descriptors
You might find the following function useful to detach the /dev/uhidX driver.
Currently only implemented in 9-current, but present in 8-release:
