No, not necessarily. RTL8187 is a chip used in many devices. The
easiest way to test if Fedora Linux supports the adapter is to install
Fedora Linux on a PC, then insert the adapter.
That URL is many years old. Devices have changed since.

0x0bda, 0x8176 is present  in the rtl8192cu driver, but this driver
is not enabled  in the OLPC OS kernel. So rebuild kernel with
CONFIG_RTL8192CU set and normal function may occur.

Yes, that would be nice. But the problem is that the list is made out
of date within a few weeks when new devices are sold. The same model
of USB device may use a different chip and driver next month.
Difficult task to track. I'm glad you can volunteer. ;-)
