In Hardy, I have to use the option driver:

  modprobe option
  echo -n '1199 0025' >/sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
I use these udev rules to automate this:

  SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1199", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0025", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe option"
  SUBSYSTEM=="drivers", DEVPATH=="/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1", RUN+="/path/to/new_id 1199 0025 %p"
  SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1199", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0025", SYMLINK+="modem"

This is the script called "new_id":


if [ $# -lt 3 ]; then
  echo 'too few arguments' >&2
  exit 1


echo -n "${VENDOR} ${PRODUCT}" >"/sys/${DEVPATH}/new_id"

I believe that proper support from Sierra is forthcoming ... ?

Hope this helps.
