A patch for the Prolific USB serial driver
Authored by: Robert Hancock on Sep 25, '03 11:54:18PM

As a follow up, when I run Verbose mode at boot, I see a string of messages saying:
IOUSB interface specific family matching fails
This streams down the boot log about 20 times and then the boot proceeds. Could this mean that the ProlificUsbserial.kext driver is loading but somehow failing to recognise the Elecom USB-serial adapter with its PL-2303 chip?
If so, what should I do to hack the Pinfo.list file in the kext driver?
If I know the product ID and manufacturer ID, from the System Profiler, could I plug them into the driver?
