How do you mean? Can you provide more details?

The module is obviously buildable in the F12 kernel source, or else it
wouldn't exist...there may be a patch in the F12 kernel package to fix

external USB ports don't work on an HP sounds like bug 524808 , which
we're currently evaluating as a blocker:


if I were a betting man I'd bet you have 3 or 4GB of RAM (or more) and
lots of "nommu_map_single: overflow..." messages in your kernel logs.
Workaround: boot with 'iommu=soft' kernel parameter.
