You can create rules in /etc/udev/rules.d eg "10-local.rules (see man udev)

and do something like:
BUS=="usb", SYSFS{serial}=="1234",KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", SYMLINK+="wx"

this way whenever the USB device is plugged in a symlink will be created
from /dev/wx pointing to /dev/ttyUSBx The only problem is many of the
cheap usb to serial adapters all have a serial number of "0" and there is
nothing unique separating one device from the other.
