This is related to this question.
I downloaded kernel 3.9.10, applied the patch with
patch -p1 < ../huion.patch, then I followed this instructions to compile the kernel, then I installed the deb packages that were generated, rebooted and I'm typing this from the new kernel,
uname -a reports my custom build. Everything good so far.
Now the problem, I connect the Huion 580 tablet and it doesn't work. My
lsusb looks like this:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp.

But the tablet is not in

What could be the problem? I can't use mainline kernel 3.11 (which supposedly includes the patch) because there are no nVidia drivers that work yet.
Before applying the patch I run
make oldconfig and left everything as default pressing enter a bunch of times. Then I applied the patch and run that command again and it asked about Huion driver with options
[N,m], I pressed
NEW I think...
Some people got it working with this patch, not me. How can I know if the patch was applied and that this device is supposed to get detected? Do I have to load the driver manually somehow?
Edit: Compiling kernel again pressing
m this time, let's see how this goes...
