Effects: Linux kernel versions v4.8 to 4.17.
All Delcom USB device with USB VID=0xFC5 and PID=0xB080.
With the release of the Linux Kernel v4.8 driver support was added for the Delcom USB HID Visual Indicator device. This driver (drivers/hid/hid-led.c) allows the user to control the USB light. When this driver was added the Delcom device was also added to the hid_have_special_driver list in hid-quirks.c file. This causes the Delcom device to no longer work as a HID device winch disables the USB HID Keycode, Mouse and Joystick events. The hid-led.c driver also changed the PWM values on the LED ports to zero when the device is opened.
