Tried several re-inserts and nothing happened but, I had to re-boot for
another reason and happened to leave it in place.
Now according to dmesg ttyUSB0 is there, there was also traffic from
the usbcore about registering a new driver.
New note to self about USB drivers, re-boot with the device installed
