I was under that impression too, but I saw a discussion about UMTS/3G
cards under Linux where it was mentioned that they most of them used a
regular serial-to-usb converter, which just wasn't recognized by the
kernel and required those two parameters to "usbserial", so I thought
"hey, maybe this works for USB UPSes too!"
