Many USB-serial drivers have similar problems; Alan Stern posted a
better fix which splits the shutdown() method into separate disconnect()
and release().

Admittedly, he didn't include ftdi in his patch because it already had
this workaround submitted -- but Alan's approach is better. We should
probably fix ftdi that way, not with this patch.
