I got the USB module working with the stock Ubuntu Gutsy kernel.

I'm not sure if it was necessary, but as the md5 of the ubuntu
usb8388.bin didn't match anything I could find, I updated with the
firmware from a recent OLPC build.

copy xo:/lib/firmware/usb8388.bin to ubuntu:/lib/firmware/'uname
-r'/usb8388.bin, plug in your USB dongle, you should be good to go.
