IIUC, modem_after_sim_unlock is only called (via
restart_initialize_idle) when the SIM lock state transitions out from
LOCKED. So we will need some plugin specific handling after getting
CPIN READY for an unlocked SIM and before initializing MMSim.

Adding some delay (e.g. 3s) after CPIN READY does seem to make
subsequent SIM operations (reading ICCID, IMSI, etc) more reliable. I
need more experimental data to determine how long the delay should be
for the modems I have.
