Nobody will have to patch their own kernel until the device is integrated !

There is the "new_id" feature which allows to add USB IDs dynamically to the serial USB drivers.
Just do (as root):

modprobe -v option
echo "201e 2009" > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id

This should work for every wireless USB modem that is not immediately recognized by any of the existing drivers.

I will add the this modem to the list of devices that USB_ModeSwitch can handle so that people won't have to write their own udev rule.
