Seems that the MosChip site virus may have been a google bug. In any case, I have a beta tester now for my driver. She/he is using virtual machines to run the dongles through Windows and would like to use them directly on Linux.
The code is being converted to spinlocks and is modeled off of another driver, the pl2303. It is another USB-serial converter that I have and has very clean code, so makes a good model.
