NetBSD creates an own UHID device node for every report ID. So the
solution here would be to scan through all UHID devices and search
for the one with the wanted vendor ID,product ID and report ID.

There are USB_GET_DEVICEINFO and USB_GET_REPORT_ID ioctls (see UHID(4)).
This makes it possible to find the appropriate UHID device.
