I have trouble with the following usb zwave stick (passtrough to lxc container with domoticz):
10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP2102/CP2109 UART Bridge Controller [CP210x family]

I've searched the forum (and google) and followed what other people did before, and added this to my conf file for the container:
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow: c 189:8 rwm
lxc.mount.entry: /dev/bus/usb/001/009 dev/bus/usb/001/009 none bind,optional,create=file
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow: c 188:0 rwm
lxc.mount.entry: /dev/ttyUSB0 dev/ttyUSB0 none bind,optional,create=file

I've tried also adding the following (the stick appears apparantly as serial device):
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow: c 13:0 rwm
lxc.mount.entry: /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2102_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_0001-if00-port0 dev/ttyUSB0 none bind,optional,create=file

But nothing (seems to) works. The user who starts the service domoticz has been added to dialout, as written on the domoticz wiki pages.

Any other ideas or clues?
