it is possible that this is a modulation stability issue and it is 
possible that simply installing a valid license will fix this issue as 
another modulation is likely to be used.

In the generic packages of the HSF modem driver, we provide the source 
code which is close to the Linux kernel. It is quite possible that you 
will be able to use the patch you have mentioned with the HSF modem 
driver with minimal modification of the source code provided with the 
driver. Source code of the binary part or a rebuild of it is probably 
not needed.

Thank you for reporting the udev issue and a way to fix it. Can you tell 
us what Linux distribution and version you are currently using so we 
could reproduce this udev issue?

If you require more assistance, please send to support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hsfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
