The driver has a vendor/product list builtin, and that device doesn't
match anything in that list.

You should
- add this to sys/dev/usb/usbdevs
- Regen the header files with 'make -f Makefile.usbdevs TOOL_AWK=awk'
- add the device to the table in sys/dev/usb/uplcom.c

That depends a bit on the system. For a traditional PC booting with BIOS
you'd use 'fdisk -c /usr/mdec/mbr_com0' to install a bootblock for
serial console.
