Yeah, It's been a while since I've gotten a response from 
the original upstream dev.  I think he's moved on.  :-)

I doubt there's much difference between the standard/live 
models and the Pro models.  In the past, the Pro model just
gives more I/O options (e.g. XLR in/out).  Check the 
differences between the XT and XT Pro in the driver.

So, I would grab the device ID and add it to the driver and 
see what you get.  I'm guessing you'll add

#define LINE6_DEVID_PODX3PRO       0x414c
#define LINE6_BIT_PODX3PRO         (1 << 7)

(However, get the device ID from `lsusb -vv` and check to 
make sure that the (1 << 7) bit isn't already used.) There's
also some other device definitions that you'll need to set 
up... just look at how the X3 Live is set up and copy that.

Then grep through wherever you see LINE6_BIT_PODX3 and see 
if you need to add your LINE6_BIT_PODX3PRO bit.

Recompile and see what you get.
