I'm having a weird problem. I've done some hacking based on another person's work to backport support for the internal keyboard on a MacBook Pro 11,5 into kernel 3.19. My GitHub source can be found here.
I've done everything I can to ensure that it's as close to kernel 4.2 as possible while still being able to compile and work as expected on 3.19.
However, while booting into 4.2 gives me perfect functionality working as expected, my module doesn't seem to do anything. Existing Apple devices work as expected, but I'm still having the same problems with my built-in keyboard.
The problems are based around the fact that the function key doesn't work, and therefore I can't use my media keys. I've also done sanity testing to make sure that other Apple keyboards do work (tested with Apple wired and wireless keyboard and both work properly).
Is there a way for me to validate that my keyboard is being bound to the right driver?
The USB id for the device is
05ac:0274, and a config line can be found for that device in hid-ids.h:147 and in hid-apple.c:553-554. I'm convinced that it's just not picking up the device, because even with the hid-apple module removed, my built-in keyboard works though the other ones don't.
How can I debug what's happening and why my built-in keyboard isn't getting bound to the
EDIT: I was able to get my keyboard bound to the right driver using the following:
# unbind everything matching 05AC:0274 from hid-generic for dev in `ls /sys/bus/hid/drivers/hid-generic/ | egrep 05AC\:0274`; do echo -n $dev | sudo tee /sys/bus/hid/drivers/hid-generic/unbind done # bind everything matching 05AC:0274 to hid-apple for dev in `ls /sys/bus/hid/devices/ | egrep 05AC:0274` ; do echo -n $dev | sudo tee /sys/bus/hid/drivers/hid-apple/bind done
The problem remains: how do I force a given USB id to associate with a given driver? I'll accept the given answer below, but I'm still looking for a solution...
