Ah, no.  This is the start of a driver that will be similar to
Linux's ``Generic USB Serial'' Driver which I am hoping that with
a few sysctl's will be a reasonable fall back for serial-like
devices for which we do not have a specific driver.

If I get programming specs for the Verizon card, I will start a
new driver for it since it has additional functionality.
