New steam-hid driver breaks Unity games.

Quote from the commit message:
"With this commit, when a HID client starts, the input device is removed;
when the HID client ends the input device is recreated."

A guy from Valve comfirms the backport works.

[Regression Potential]
Low. This fix is specific to hid-steam, which is a new driver introduced
in v4.18.

Rodrigo Rivas Costa (1):
  HID: steam: remove input device when a hid client is running.
