Eh, I looked at the FT232R datasheet just now (instead of the FTDI chip I've
been using), and my idea wouldn't work anyway...it's internal.

There are people experienced with the kernel over on the libusb-devel list who
could probably help (though somewhat hostile to FTDI). I have no idea if that
would break your other USB devices, though. If you have any luck with this,
it'd be nice if you posted a patch; I'm sure this is not the first time
someone's had a EEPROM problem like this. I generally avoid it by using MPROG
once and *then* loading libftdi/libusb-win32, but that's a hassle.
