[CentOS-virt] KVM usb to serial converter issue....

So I have something that I am trying to do in kvm that requires a usb to
serial converter...that goes to a serial device.  I pass the usb to serial
device via a physical device and win7 discovers the device and assigns it a
com port...all is good until I reboot win7 and I have to remove the device
and re-add it from kvm...it then discovers it and assigns it a new com
port.  If I look in windows it appears that the com port it was originally
using shows that it is in use..so I think that is the issue but not sure how
to correct it so every time I reboot I dont have to re-add...

my xml snippet...
<hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb' managed='yes'
      <vendor id='0x067b'/>
      <product id='0x2303'/>

Any thoughts...would be appreciated...Thanks! :)
