I can't remember for sure, but the included rules file might have
problems loading the us428control program.  I think there might have
been problems I encountered with using the tascam_fpga script directly
from udev, since us428control doesn't self-daemonize.  I'll attach the
.rules file that I use, which might be useful as an example to fix the
.rules file provided already if it's found that there are problems
with udev and the existing tascam_fpga script.  As I recall, since
us428control was still holding on to its stdout, udev would hang and
not load any devices after the US-428.

A better option might be a patch to us428control to add a daemonize
switch (which, of course, could be as simple as fclose()-ing stdin,
stdout, and stderr, and dealing with any I/O functions accordingly).
