Just wondering why not detach both interfaces? Or better give the user
an option to detach the interfaces he wants to detach (so that
he can use the other interface as UART).

There are device with more than one configuration. But I do not
know of any FTDI device with more than one configuration.
Under Windows, the default libusb-win32 device driver does not
set configuration, therefore, usb_set_configuration() is necessary.
Under Linux, this is normally not necessary since the kernel usb
layer will do this for you. Unless you manually unconfig the
device (echo 0>/sys/bus/usb/devices/.../bConfigurationValue).

I believe the patch should work for Linux. Maybe also BSDs. I have
no experiences with Mac OS X.
