Player X USB not compatible with pi zero?

Hi there - After some testing, It seems like the Player X USB controller doesn’t work with the Pi Zero. The device is recognized but the button presses themselves are not recognized. Unplugging the Player X and plugging it back in seem to resolve it. On the Pi3, the Player X works just fine.

Some things I’ve tried:

lsusb shows the device:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 16d0:0ec4 MCS
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

jstest recognizes the device properly:

jstest  /dev/input/js0
Driver version is 2.1.0.
Joystick (Pimoroni Ltd Picade Player X USB) has 4 axes (X, Y, Z, Rx)

Dmesg shows the device as well:

[  340.425672] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=16d0, idProduct=0ec4, bcdDevice= 2.00
[  340.425694] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[  340.425707] usb 1-1: Product: Picade Player X USB
[  340.425717] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Pimoroni Ltd
[  340.425728] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 00000000001A

Reset USB doesn’t work:

sudo usbreset 16d0:0ec4

Any thoughts on how to get this to work on a pi zero? The only way it seems to get this working is to unplug in and plug it back in.
