Definitely.  And please: send the patch upstream.  The address is
linux-usb at vger.kernel.org

It's also nice to have some more info about the modem. Like, is it based
on a Qualcomm chip?  Does it support QMI? Anything else? "lsusb -v"

But don't worry if you don't have all the answers.  The patch is the
most important part.
