CONFIG_HIDRAW: /dev/hidraw raw HID device support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_HIDRAW:

Help text

Say Y here if you want to support HID devices (from the USB specification standpoint) that aren't strictly user interface devices, like monitor controls and Uninterruptable Power Supplies.

This module supports these devices separately using a separate event interface on /dev/hidraw.

There is also a /dev/hiddev configuration option in the USB HID configuration menu. In comparison to hiddev, this device does not process the hid events at all (no parsing, no lookups). This lets applications to work on raw hid events when they want to, and avoid using transport-specific userspace libhid/libusb libraries.

If unsure, say Y.
