Port layout of the Novatel 551L (LTE Band 13 device similar to the E362
this Nathan's plugin targets, but USB instead of PCI-E minicard) is as

0: AT commands
1: DM
2: another DM
3: unknown (probably QMI; doesn't respond to $GPS_START)
4/5: CDC Ether

Odd that we have two DM ports.  If Intf3 is really QMI then we should
make sure it's blacklisted in 'option' so we don't have to do
serial-related junk with it.
