OSX update:

  I removed the osx-pl2303 driver.  It is no longer really open source
  (sourceforge doesn't have code, and there's a link to pay for a
  download).  There's a fork on github, but it's not super maintained

  I installed the official prolific driver.

  The GR601-W now works just fine, including restarting gpsd after it's

  A ublox AEK-4H (antaris4 development kit) also works fine.  (This seems
  to use a different USB/serial kind of chip.)


  the 'upstream bugs' should be narrowed to the osx-pl2303 driver, and
  it should be recommended against.

  the "OSX unsupported" notion should be backed out, as that was mostly
  based on the osx-pl2303 problems.
