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.
