I stumbled upon the page

It says FreeBSD has support for FT8U232AM and FT8U245AM while OpenBSD is
supposed to support FT8U100AX, FT8U232AM and FT8U245AM.

In FreeBSD's "usbdevs" (rev 1.215) I see

  product FTDI SERIAL_8U100AX	0x8372  8U100AX Serial converter
  product FTDI SERIAL_8U232AM	0x6001  8U232AM Serial converter

while OpenBSD's (rev 1.127) contains

  product FTDI SERIAL_8U232AM	0x6001  8U232AM Serial converter
  product FTDI PS2KBDMS		0x8371  PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse
  product FTDI SERIAL_8U100AX	0x8372  Serial converter
  product FTDI LCD_MX200	0xfa01  Matrix Orbital MX200 Series LCD
  product FTDI LCD_LK202_24	0xfa03  Matrix Orbital LK202-24 LCD
  product FTDI LCD_LK204_24	0xfa04  Matrix Orbital LK204-24 LCD
  product FTDI LCD_CFA_631	0xfc0c  Crystalfontz CFA-631 LCD
  product FTDI LCD_CFA_632	0xfc08  Crystalfontz CFA-632 LCD
  product FTDI LCD_CFA_633	0xfc0b  Crystalfontz CFA-633 LCD
  product FTDI LCD_CFA_634	0xfc09  Crystalfontz CFA-634 LCD
  product FTDI SEMC_DSS20	0xfc82  SEMC DSS-20 SyncStation

As the FT8U245AM is mentioned neither there nor in NetBSD's "usbdevs"
file and both projects took this driver from NetBSD, can I conclude the
web page is simply wrong?

I would like to send them the correct list of their devices NetBSD
supports for 1.6 and 2.0 (ie. FT8U100AX and FT8U232AM).
