This allows the latest N-Trig devices to function properly.

This has been accepted into Jiri Kosina's git tree for 3.4. It will eventually
come down through the stable queue in three or four months, but it should be
applied to Precise in the meantime.

Note that this won't have any effect until the Ubuntu sauce hid-ntrig patches
are reverted.
