[PATCH 8/8] api: Let MM_MODEM_MODE be a bitfield, and new PreferredMode property

Supported and Allowed modes are modified to be bitmasks of MM_MODEM_MODE values,
and preference of a specific mode is now given in the new PreferredMode
property and as an extra argument to the SetAllowedModes() call.

 * Supported Modes: bitmask specifying which modes are supported by the specific
hardware. For example, a modem may only support 1G/2G/3G connections (not 4G).

 * Allowed Modes: bitmask specifying which modes, of the ones Supported by the
modem, are allowed to use. For example, a modem may support 1G/2G/3G connections
but only 1G and 2G connections are allowed by the user as 3G involves more
expensive data rates.

 [Allowed] ⊆ [Supported]

 * Preferred Mode: specific mode which is preferred among the ones defined in
the Allowed modes bitmask. For example, a modem may allow 1G/2G/3G connections
but the user would like that if possible 2G be used, as 3G consumes too much
battery. If 2G is not possible, 3G can be used.

 [Preferred] ∈ [Allowed]
