These are not controllers we'll randomly find in devices: Windows boxes
use I2C HID, Chrome devices use "new" firmware, so that leaves random
ARM where someone needs to consciously add proper compatible before the
driver will engage with the controller.

I would prefer we were conservative and not accept potentially invalid
data.
