There are even _two_ ways for preliminary attempts at adding
a new device ID to USB drivers:

"You can echo the vendor and device id to the "new_id" file in the
/sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/cp2102/ directory."

And at least for the ftdi_sio driver (and perhaps some others),
there's the product/vendor module parameter (see modinfo ftdi_sio).

Thanks for the report!
(and please notify or even write a patch in case the driver actually
supports the device, and does so sufficiently successfully)
