[chirp_users] FTDI Chipset driver bricking fake FTDI chips

In my computer hobby, "bricked" has typically meant that the device has been
rendered in a non-functional state.  This term is used even if the device
might be salvageable, but typically it will take expert knowledge or
significant bother to get it working again.  That is indeed the case here.

No chips were "bricked". "Bricked" implies that the chip will no longer
function, period. They can be restored and there are videos appearing that
show how to do it.
