3G USB support

Contact: Andrew Thompson <thompsa(at)>

Recently, a bunch of new device IDs have been added for the u3g(4) cellular wireless driver; the list should be comparable now with other operating systems around. A lot of these devices have a feature where the unit first attaches as a disk or CD-ROM that contains the Win/Mac drivers. This state should be detected by the u3g driver and the usb device is sent a command to switch to modem mode. This has been working for quite some time but as it is implemented differently for each vendor I am looking for feedback on any units where the auto switchover is not working (or the init is not recognized at all). Please ensure you are running an up to date kernel, like r201681 or later from 9.0-CURRENT, or 8-STABLE after the future merge of this revision.
