The patch had some other issues which is why I dropped it.
I like the testing of the class id much more, as it's done by the current upstream code.
E.g. this diva port reports PCI_CLASS_COMMUNICATION_OTHER as PCI CLASS ID, which differs to what the serial port driver should handle.

We have the same IDs.
Do not mix up "PCI device ID" and "PCI subdevice/subsystem ID".
Check with "lspci -vn":
