After doing

sudo rmmod ftdi_sio
sudo modprobe ftdi_sio vendor=0x1457 product=0x5118 

the debugging board is recognized:

ftdi_sio 2-2.1:1.1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
usb 2-2.1: Detected FT2232C
usb 2-2.1: Number of endpoints 2
usb 2-2.1: Endpoint 1 MaxPacketSize 64
usb 2-2.1: Endpoint 2 MaxPacketSize 64
usb 2-2.1: Setting MaxPacketSize 64
usb 2-2.1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0

Thanks for patience! :)
