Wait a minute, if OpenBSD claimed this device, chances are that it was  
providing a USB to serial port also. Usually these are called  
something like /dev/ttyUSB0 in Linux, I don't know what OpenBSD does  
with it. In that case, you should run the megatec driver on the serial  
port, not the megatec_usb driver.

The megatec_usb driver attempts to provide the bare functionality that  
is required for a USB to serial converter (when not supported by the  
kernel) and then uses the megatec driver core to speak to it. But if  
the first is already supported by the kernel (if it claims it, chances  
are that it is) there is no need for that.
