Re: [MM] [PATCH 4/5] novatel: Poll for whether the connection still exists.

    Given that the $NWQMISTATUS reply is not bearer-specific (reports
    overall status of the modem), I was thinking in moving the periodic
    connectivity check to MMIfaceModem instead, and plug it in using the
    same logic as e.g. the signal quality check. In that way, other
    implementations (e.g. Samsung) could benefit from the same generic
    timeout handling logic. What do you think?

Is it useful to other implementations? I consider the periodic
connectivity check a hack to work around Novatel's fairly broken
firmware and complete lack of unsolicited notifications. If other modems
are also bad at this, that seems fine, but I'd like to resist
generalizing features when there's really only one instance of the problem.

Oh, I thought your Samsung plugin also needed this; may have overlooked it.
