linux: CONFIG_HIDRAW=y #86598
Motivation for this change
The linux kernel arm64 default config doesn't include HIDRAW. The kernel docs list this option as "If unsure, say Y". It's been enabled in x86_64 since [https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/622e3f28e50fe30cc199c735440cd7c75e0033b0](12 years ago). It's also been in OpenWRT for 5 years. I'm not sure why it's not on by default for arm64.
Motivation for this change is feature parity between platforms. I was able to do hidraw input on my desktop and on rpi4 (with rpi kernel), but not an rpi3 with linuxPackages built for aarch64.
That said, I'm not very knowledgeable about kernel modules, and the warning on top of
I tested this by enabling HIDRAW via kernelPatches, works as expected.
looks like the build failed for linux_4_4. bummer :(
only happened for the arm64 build, the x86 went ok. hum.
