A patch was submitted that adds support for a device with usb ID
05e1:0400, but it did not get merged yet.

The reason why I didn't merge the patch yet, is that there are
multiple devices out there using this USB id but they have different
internal components and no way to differentiate between the two.

If you can open up your stick and tell us what is printed on each
chip, then I can help you get yours working.
