My bad. Didn't read carefully enough.

The USB data indicates that this is not an FTDI-based device.

Rather, it's based on the Prolific PL2303, and uses the generic
USB manufacturer/device ID for a 2303.

Recompile with the Prolific PL2303 support enabled, and load that

The PL2303 driver support in Linux is pretty good - I use a generic
serial adapter with this chip with no trouble at all. If I recall
correctly, such devices usually do not have a device-specific serial
number - Prolific does support this capability but I think it requires
that the vendor add an EEPROM.

You can see if there's such an ID by doing "lsusb -v", I think.
