Hi guys,

Our x86 kernel settings would let us enable
CONFIG_HID_BATTERY_STRENGTH. This feature sounds rather cool to me,
even though I don't think I have any device implementing it, but I
suspect other openSUSE users may do.

Looking through git history, I see that it was briefly enabled in
x86 config files, between openSUSE 12.2 M2 (commit d017ea13f) and
Beta1 (commit 37113a827.) No explanation was logged as to why it
got enabled and then disabled.

Typically when an option gets disabled like that, it's because a
dependency was introduced in the update that wasn't met by the rest of
the config. When the dependency is removed again, there's no automatic
detection that would have re-enabled that option.

This feature is enabled in most armv6hl and armv7hl config files,
since openSUSE 13.1.

Don't we want that feature enabled in i386 and x86_64 config files
as well? And maybe even arm64 and ppc*? I mean, wireless keyboards
can be used on any system, can't they?

I don't have any objection.
