I guess this is done somewhere in OS layer. I was amazed too that opening
'/dev/ttyUSB<N>' works. Also did search with Lua maillist, there is mention for
this way.

(My case was linking Arduino module (which uses serial protocol over USB with
preset 9600 baud speed) with Love graphic frontend. So given snippet is from
real code.)
