Composite devices that combine multiple HID devices in one USB device like most wireless mouse/keyboard dongles are not currently supported by our usb_hid. Also usb_hid does only implement the boot protocol for keyboards which is only a basic operational model for keyboards which limits the functionality (i.e. "multimedia" keys not working).
I am opening this ticket since issues with composite HID devices were reported to me multiple times already and to indicate that I'm going to work on the usb_hid driver in that regard.
