hid-steam module breaks Steam Controller input in some games
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The hid_steam module causes some games (such as Rocket League) to see the Steam Controller as multiple controllers, and no longer responds correctly to input.

The workaround is to blacklist the hid_steam module.

Upstream bug report.

A patch to the hid-steam module fix this issue is available at
https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/10/14/502. I tested it locally and it fixes the issue with hid-steam and Rocket League for me. So, with this patch, the hid-steam blacklist work-around is no longer needed with the Steam Controller.
