Default Getting something into centosplus for 5.2?

I've got a USB to serial adapter that I picked up from Radio
Shack

earlier this year. The updated pl2303 driver is already in the
mainstream kernel as per
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=429652 but I'm not
getting
much traction from Red Hat as far as them updating the kernel.
So every

time there's an updated kernel, I have to rebuild the srpm.


Seems like it would be simpler to get an adapter that work with
the current/native pl2303 driver.


For the purpose of serial consoles, these two adapters work for
me under pl2303 without any problems using current/past CentOS5
kernels:


Tripp-Lite U209-000-R:

Cables-To-Go 26886:
http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat%5fid=101&sku=26886

Think they cost about US$15 each at provantage.com.


# uname -rpmi
2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64

# lsmod|grep pl2303

# # Inserted serial-to-USB adapter

# lsusb|grep Tripp-Lite
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 2478:2008 Tripp-Lite U209-000-R Serial
Port


# lsmod|grep pl2303

open a request at http://bugs.centos.org/ - thats the *only* way to get
stuff into centos_plus, and if there is a patch or a proposed src.rpm
for new pkgs, things go faster.

I've been using these with zero issues ( 14 of them connected to one
machine ):


drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for ark3116
ark3116 1-1:1.0: ark3116 converter detected
usb 1-1: ark3116 converter now attached to ttyUSB0

about 3/each, totally unbranded from Tottenham Court Road, London
