Bug description:
  The Goodix GF3208 is not being recognised by the system (Dell Inspiron
  15 7577). What's worse is that it isn't even showing the manufacturer
  vendor id information when doing:

  $ lsusb
  Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
  Bus 001 Device 004: ID 27c6:5301
  Bus 001 Device 003: ID 8087:0a2b Intel Corp.
  Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:c52f Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
  Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:5652 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
  Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

  Note that the vendor id 27c6 should at least say "Shenzhen Huiding
  Technology Co., Ltd." as per

  Will/has support been made for the Goodix GF3208 Fingerprint
