Dear list,

I'm running out of ideas how to convince my USB barcode scanner
to send its data through a device node instead of inserting it
into the kernel's keyboard subsystem, because I'd like to be able
to tell the two (PS/2 keyboard and USB barcode scanner) apart.

Before I try to adapt the HID driver source myself, I wanted to
ask here... this problem seems fairly common to me, so I might not
be the first to put effort into that.

Is there something I have overlooked? I have found a few threads
about similar problems, but the global blacklist/quirk table doesn't sound
right to me - after all, I _want_ the device, it would just be nice
to have the data come from somewhere else.

Thanks in advance,
