Maplin USB to Twin Serial Port Adapter N04GF

Confirmation that the Maplin USB to Serial (DB-9) two port adapter (Order Code N04GF) is detected by Fedora 12 and works perfectly. The packaging also has the product code BF-816 which reveals that the adapter is actually a BAFO Technologies product, which uses the MosChip MCS7720 controller (driver downloads here).
