A "stub driver" isn't a driver in the traditional computer sense of
the word - it's just a placeholder that tells the kernel not to let
the generic HID kext bind to your device. If memory serves, it's just
a bundle (directory) with a .plist that specifies the vendor and
product IDs of the device.
I think there was a device called the "9button" or something - check
the Apple USB archives via Google, and you should see some more info
The other option is to work directly with Apple's HID API.
