kernel 3.10 and logitech Unifying receivers


as folks on -current may have noticed... the 3.10 kernel breaks logitech mice and keyboards that use the unifying receivers and usb 3.0.

Bug is reported here:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60507

and thankfully, there is a solution that is working... for now at least.

First get and build this code:
Code:
git clone https://git.lekensteyn.nl/ltunify.git
cd ltunify
make
then when you need to pair the device
Code:
su
./ltunify -d /dev/hidraw0 unpair 1
./ltunify -d /dev/hidraw0 pair 10
that should do it.

just for reference, some lkml notes:

this worked for me. Had been trying to get it working for a while with my Logitech M325 and Slackware64 14.1
This fix took 2 secs. I use /dev/hidraw1 instead.
It also works fine with my cheao "onn" wired usb mouse no problem
Thanks

I'm on kernel 3.17, and my Logitech T650 (which uses a unifying receiver) was plug-and-play.

After I used Windows to update the firmware, that is.
