I've enabled these in F18/rawhide.  Justin is on F17 duty this month and will probably pick them up with the next set of commits.

Package kernel-3.5.4-2.fc17:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing kernel-3.5.4-2.fc17'
as soon as you are able to, then reboot.

This is in the stable repo.  Not sure why bodhi didn't close the bug.
