I understand your point, but that doesn't sit well with the fact that my joypad 
broke *after* I updated from 5.2-CURRENT of ~ August 15 to 6.0-CURRENT of ~ 
August 19. Logically, if it had been busted by the uhid upgrade in March, then 
it could not possibly have worked with 5.2-CURRENT (which it did, just
as well as it did with 5.2.1-RELEASE[1]), correct?

[1] Better, in fact, as the device wasn't detected at boot time in 5.2.1
but was in 5.2-CURRENT.
