usbhid driver prevents the useful driver from being loaded
I'm using a controller which has both an rs-232 port and a USB port. Currently I'm using an external rs-232 to usb converter, but I'd like to use the built-in USB port. From the Windows driver I can deduce that the controller is using a cypress rs-232 to usb converter, but they have changed its vendorId and prodId.
Is it possible for me to tell linux to use the cypress_m8 driver for that device without recompiling the driver? Or if I do need to recompile the driver, can you give me some tips on how to do this, because I'm not very familiar with compiling drivers?
(I'm using ubuntu 11.10, linux 3.0.0)
Thank you very much,

Reason: Now I have a different problem: the usbhid driver is loaded instead of the cypress_m8 driver.
