I think they do - they "own" the one that is present in the kernel itself :) (this is the way any sane developer would do it)

The vendor ID is there: it's USB_VENDOR_ID_WACOM One way to find the numeric value of that is to plug that identifier into http://lxr.free-electrons.com/ident - you'll see it's 056a However, device support is done on a (vendor ID, product ID) combination and you're correct in saying that there is no (0x56a,0x90) entry in the table.

Great! Can you put that information on the bug then please?

Ping Cheng is both a wacom and kernel developer. You just reported it to him, and he was already aware. Daniel -- gentoo-kernel@l.g.o mailing list
