Hi all,

I'm currently trying to compile a kernel for an AMCC440EP board within an
eldk environment. We've got a FTDI usb2serial converter we need to connect
to the board. Now I've compiled a kernel on a gentoo machine for this device
and had no problems. With this board, the kernel recognizes the device fine:

ftdi_sio 1-1:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
usb 1-1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0
drivers/usb/serial/ftdi_sio.c: v1.4.3:USB FTDI Serial Converters Driver

but udev doesn't actually make the ttyUSB0 node. If anyone knows what may
have caused the problem and how to fix it, it'd be much appreciated.
