I post carbon copy to linux-kernel and joystick guru on my own

Your procedure seems to be perfect. Your problem is not caused by your
miss, but by gamecon.c specification.

There are several varieties in DPP-style pararrel connector. Each 1P
are same, but 2P+ are differant. Your DPP is 1 or 2 perhaps. Gamecon.c
seems to support 3 (SNESkey psx). I am sorry, I can not help you.

1. DPP standard (1P-2P)
1-1. DPP standard + unmodified multitap (1P-4P)

2. DPP multitap (1P-5P, also called "mega-tap")

3. SNESkey psx (1P-5P, gamecon.c psx)

Thank you for your reading,
