X52 pro MFD library

The SAITEK X52 PRO Flight System is a USB-HID compatible joystick designed for flight simulation usage. The HID part of the joystick is fully supported on Linux 2.6.x. The device also contains a multi-function display (MFD) consisting of 3x16 alphanumeric lines, and several bi-color LED illuminated buttons that can be enabled individually. The MFD and the LEDs cannot be accessed using the default Linux joystick driver, but need special device commands. The aim of the x52 PRO MFD library is to encapsulate these commands and enable accessing the MFD and LED features under Linux.
