Subject[patch] 2.6.9-mm1: usb/serial/console.c compile error

The following compile error seems to come from Linus' tree:

<-- snip -->

CC drivers/usb/serial/bus.o
CC drivers/usb/serial/console.o
drivers/usb/serial/console.c: In function `usb_console_write':
drivers/usb/serial/console.c:221: warning: passing arg 3 of pointer to function makes integer from pointer without a cast
drivers/usb/serial/console.c:221: error: too many arguments to function
drivers/usb/serial/console.c:223: warning: passing arg 3 of `usb_serial_generic_write' makes integer from pointer without a cast
drivers/usb/serial/console.c:223: error: too many arguments to function `usb_serial_generic_write'
make[3]: *** [drivers/usb/serial/console.o] Error 1

<-- snip -->

This was caused by the changed "write" in usb_serial_device_type.

Is the following patch correct?
