[lug] VISOR (was "pda")

The bug that Greg knew about was fixed in (I think) 2.2.18, and
2.3.99pre12 or something.  So it should not be present in the 2.4.1
kernel.  However, I have experienced the strange problems I have had on
2.4.0, and I know of no big changes in recent kernels.  From what I have
read on the usbvisor list, many people are syncing fine with the USB
cradle.  At least one that I know of can sync with coldsync, but not
pilot-link.  It also seems that their might be a hardware issue, because
the 1 person I talked with who had to use coldsync was, like me, running
and Athlon on a Via chipset.

So, in brief, I think there may be bug(s) in the driver.  But I have not
taken the time to research it extensively, so I could be wrong.  Hence
my use of the serial cradle.  Slow, but works like a charm ;-)

The usbvisor lists are:
	usbvisor-announce at lists.sourceforge.net
	usbvisor-devel at lists.sourceforge.net

Both have been very quiet recently, though.
