I've made a v2 patch and sent it to the list. I adjusted the commit
message to reflect the change.

I also tried to get completely rid of `last_report_read` with this but
it doesn't work because it is used in at least one place to track
delivery of the report just before working on the queues, it seems. I
wonder if this is necessary but this needs more investigation.

Aric, it in `dlls/winebus.sys/main.c`:

547         case IOCTL_HID_READ_REPORT:
548         {
549             TRACE_(hid_report)("IOCTL_HID_READ_REPORT\n");
550             EnterCriticalSection(&ext->report_cs);
551             status = ext->vtbl->begin_report_processing(device);
552             if (status != STATUS_SUCCESS)
553             {
554                 irp->IoStatus.u.Status = status;
555                 LeaveCriticalSection(&ext->report_cs);
556                 break;
557             }
558             if (!ext->last_report_read)
^^^ Could this also be discarded?
559             {
560                 irp->IoStatus.u.Status = status = deliver_last_report(ext,
561                     irpsp->Parameters.DeviceIoControl.OutputBufferLength,
562                     irp->UserBuffer, &irp->IoStatus.Information);
563                 ext->last_report_read = TRUE;
564             }
565             else
566             {
567                 InsertTailList(&ext->irp_queue,
568                 status = STATUS_PENDING;
569             }
570             LeaveCriticalSection(&ext->report_cs);
571             break;
