I do not know of anybody working on Wacom drivers or considering to
integrate any missing pieces to the current usb_hid driver. We have
plans to put device drivers for Intel notebook platforms on our agenda
again in 2022. I'm not entirely sure if USB HID should be part of
this, at least not highest priority, as the current implementation
supports all devices available to us very well. First, we will
concentrate on the base drivers (e.g., XHCI) to support recent
notebook platforms.

Do you have experiments to share or just some details what is
missing from the current driver? Is Linux 4.16.3 supporting the device
your adressing? Are we talking about [1]?
