Here's some preliminary info:

1) Whether writing to the 1st or 2nd port, the machine hangs pretty badly
after catting /dev/urandom for more than 1 second or two. This continues
even after catting has stopped, and the device has been disconnected. This
smells like some type of resource leak, probably memory, to me.

2) I've included an Oops when writing to the 1st serial port, showing some
difficulty allocating memory.
3) After looking at visor_write(), I was a bit surprised to see it
allocating its own urb and buffer, while I thought it would be using
the ones that were allocated in usb-serial.usb_serial_probe(). After
looking at other serial devices that use usb_submit_urb() in their
write() functions, I found that the following used the buffers/urb
allocated for them:

cyberjack, digi_acceleport, generic, io_ti, ipaq, ir-usb, keyspan_pda,
kobil_sct, mct_u232, omninet, pl2303, safe_serial

while I found that the following created their own (some for each write):

empeg, ftdi_sio, keyspan, kl5kusb105, visor, whiteheat

I'm not so sure about:
io_edgeport


Is this expected behavior, or am I just missing something here?

It would seem like reusing the buffer and urb would be advantageous,
but there may be more issues here than I am aware of.
