This may not answer your question, but I have several 2960 Cisco
switches and the USB port on them works just fine with umodem.  In the
2960, they identify as:

[ 609123.259177] umodem0 at uhub1 port 5 configuration 1 interface 0
[ 609123.259177] umodem0: Cisco (0x5a6) Cisco USB Console (0x09), rev 2.00/0.00, addr 6, iclass 2/2
[ 609123.259177] umodem0: data interface 1, has no CM over data, has no break
[ 609123.259177] umodem0: status change notification available
[ 609123.259177] ucom1 at umodem0
[ 609163.321067] ucom1: detached
[ 609163.321067] umodem0: detached
[ 609163.321067] umodem0: at uhub1 port 5 (addr 6) disconnected

Seems like that may be what you have.....
