Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] usb: serial: Perform verification for FTDI FT232R devices



So what else is in those magic 2.12.00 official drivers besides this
eeprom magic?  And why don't you printer a much more informative
message to the logs when you do fail a chip?  

No matter what you say here, you're targetting end users with this
patch, even if you're just trying to put pressure on the vendors
making knock off copies of the chip.  Which isn't good, but I know who
I'd be mad at if this bricked my USB to serial cable in the name of
vendor chip purity.
