Bug description:
  ===SRU Justification===
  New steam-hid driver breaks Unity games.

  Quote from the commit message:
  "With this commit, when a HID client starts, the input device is removed;
  when the HID client ends the input device is recreated."

  A guy from Valve comfirms the backport works.

  [Regression Potential]
  Low. This fix is specific to hid-steam, which is a new driver introduced
  in v4.18.

  ===Original Bug Report===
  The new hid_steam driver in kernel 4.18 breaks the use of it within Steam.

  Games either:
  - Crash
  - Don't detect it at all
  - Only pick it up as player 2

  To get it working as normal, it needs blacklisting currently.
