I'm running it just fine on F7 and any-any 109. It looks like you are running a custom kernel by the output. I can tell you that it works fine with this official kernel:

# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-headers-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7
kernel-devel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7
kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7

Also you ran the "runme.pl" from the any any patch right?
