I have not tested it yet, but i think the sysfs files for powering up gps are 
changed in v21 kernel. I have written about it here and will hopefully fix it 
for next release:

Btw the gps device is /dev/ttySAC1 and if you do:

	cat /dev/ttySAC1

it should print some NMEA messges. If not then gps is probably not powered up.
