Please apply the following patch and see if it fixes your problem. I have
no idea if this is correct...it's just from Googling for hid_report_size
and BSD.  If other BSDers can check this, it'd be appreciated (it looks
like NetBSD and FreeBSD need the 3rd arg to be a pointer, and OpenBSD
needs it to be an int. Argh.)
