USBHID polling - non-mouse


Hi,
I was just wondering if there was a method to increase the general USB polling rate for USB ports in Linux systems.

I know that there are a multitude of options for increasing the mousepoll, such as editting /sys/module/usbhid/parameters/mousepoll, but I was looking to apply this to other USB devices.

Is there a parameter for USBHID that I can set for this?

Thanks

Edit:

For instance, on my Kubuntu box, I'd like to edit /etc/modprobe.d/options, and set
options usbhid <parameter>=1
for a 1 ms polling rate.

This is to set up a USB controller with as little lag as possible. The default of 10ms is too high.
