The kernel is all one big tree. The file you're looking for is
drivers/usb/misc/iowarrior.c. (Preview at;a=blob;f=drivers/usb/misc/iowarrior.c).
The change you're talking about should be fairly straightforward - just
look for the existing ids.

Step 1 for me has always been to compile a whole kernel. Unfortunately
that's a bit of learning curve. I'm not sure which resources to recommend.
