Stupid question, have you tried plugging the device in to verify it is
indeed not supported? I have a Logitech headset with USB vendor:device
ID 046d:0a12 (yours is 046d:0a01) and it works like a charm. I believe
the device works using its own protocol and embedded firmware, it does
not need a driver. Not sure how the device exposes the audio/input
functionality to the OS yet but it does.
