It was added back in 2004 in the 2.4.26 kernel release. Petr Slansky
asked me to add it, and sent a patch as he had the device.

But before that, back in 2003 Adam emailed saying that the visor driver
worked with the device, and sent me a patch for it. I didn't notice the
duplicate ids for well over a decade now :(

I'd bet this is really a pl2303 device, given that the visor driver was
just a "dumb" pipe to the device and the pilot sync tools never cared
about baud rates and the like, so odds are the visor entry should be

Petr, do you still have this device? Is it still really a pl2303
