Yes. But the driver isn't a tty driver so you cannot use the normal tty
ioctls to set it up.  Just open and read/write:

 bjorn@nemi:~$ cat /dev/cdc-wdm0 &
 [2] 6669
 bjorn@nemi:~$ echo -e "ATI\r" >/dev/cdc-wdm0
 bjorn@nemi:~$ ATI

Issuing unsupported tty ioctls does no harm of course, but you'll have
to ignore the errors if you do so. And you can of course not run PPP
over the cdc-wdm devices.  They are pure AT command channels.

I believe that should work fine. I've been doing it for a while with a
primitive perl script, and neither the Ericsson nor the Huawei modem
have any problems when being probed for the wrong protocol.
