FTDI serial adapters and Chrome OS

Looks like I’ve run into my first problem: FTDI based USB to serial adapters don’t work as they seem to be automatically disconnected shortly after plug in. I suspect that it’s udev running the brltty rules, not finding a assistive device, and aborting.

The udev scripts are under /lib/udev/rules.d but I can’t hack it as the rootfs is read only. Let’s see what the devs think..
