 * Prolific PL-2301/PL-2302 driver ... http://www.prolific.com.tw/ 
 *
 * The protocol and handshaking used here should be bug-compatible
 * with the Linux 2.2 "plusb" driver, by Deti Fliegl.
 *
 * HEADS UP:  this handshaking isn't all that robust.  This driver
 * gets confused easily if you unplug one end of the cable then
 * try to connect it again; you'll need to restart both ends. The
 * "naplink" software (used by some PlayStation/2 developers) does
 * the handshaking much better!   Also, sometimes this hardware
 * seems to get wedged under load.  Prolific docs are weak, and
 * don't identify differences between PL2301 and PL2302, much less
 * anything to explain the different PL2302 versions observed.
 *
 * NOTE:  pl2501 has several modes, including pl2301 and pl2302
 * compatibility.   Some docs suggest the difference between 2301
 * and 2302 is only to make MS-Windows use a different driver...
 *
 * pl25a1 glue based on patch from Tony Gibbs.  Prolific "docs" on
 * this chip are as usual incomplete about what control messages
 * are supported.
