Did you get any errors when you patched and re-compiled the kernel?

It appears that there are 2 different types of these devices:
- serial device on the USB bus
- serial device on the PCMCIA bus

Obviously your device is likely to be a serial device on the USB bus, which will be similar to gamfa's Sierra AC875 Aircard -

The patch you mentioned will affect the usbserial module, but it may be possible to avoid this patch simply by forcing the usbserial module to recognise your device by specifying your vendor/product numbers when you load it, like this -
Code:
rmmod usbserial
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x.... product=0x....


You can find out your vendor/product numbers with this command
Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices


Then the other important requirement is to create 2 device nodes, with these commands
Code:
mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
