Hopefully Guy will chime in, but, without modifying the kernel, I think
a mix would require a 3.8 kernel (or newer) since the kernel would know
about the 0x104D vendor and the 0x3000 product, but would not know about
the 0x3006 product.  You could use the one available vendor-product
modprobe pair to tell the ftdi_sio module about the 0x3006 product it
doesn't know about, thus achieving the desired result of the kernel
knowing about the 0x3000 and 0x3006 devices.

Or, you could modify the kernel to tell it about the vendor and product
IDs, and then a mix should work, again assuming the ftdi_sio module at
least knows about the chip type.
