The firmware version is definitely not an accurate way to distinguish 
between chip type -- we tried this before.

I'd suggest that you open the device and physically check the markings 
on the chip. If it really is a reused ID I will ask ZyDAS to shout 
loudly at Abocom (they offered to do so if we ever find a vendor who 
does this...)

I wrote a similar patch a few weeks ago which was posted to this list. 
It's already on it's way upstream for 2.6.23.
