I'm 99% sure the FT232 USB-UART IC works because I can successfully
run `openocd --file=ft231x.ocd --file=ecp5.ocd` and get lots of output
from there. Additionally I can run the blinky Echo example you sent
me, it will change the LEDs on the fpga depending on the key press. If
I run minicom in one xterm and screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200 in the
other, typing in one will appear in the other and vice versa... sort
of, it takes a second, and sometimes repeating the key press is
required, but after about 30 key presses it stops responding, but the
LEDs will still change based on key presses. I am so confused.
