I have tried a lot of USB->serial converters but none report its iSerial number in udev. This makes it impossible to distinguish between adaptors. This is a problem if they are moved from one USB slot to annother. Is this a problem with udev or with the adaptors? Is there any USB to serial converters reporting the serial number the correct way?
