With that change, /dev/pilot is created, but I still can't sync the PDA. 
Jpilot does nothing, even though I configured it to use /dev/pilot

1. Push sync button on the PDA cable
2. Verify /dev/pilot is created
3. Click sync in Jpilot
4. ...nothing!

Not on my system. I have to do "modprobe visor" first.
