1 - 9 applied and tested with a bunch of my hardware.  I fixed up one
error before pushing; the g_return_val_if_fail() in nm-device-bt.c when
a modem got added mistakenly checked that *both* the control and data
ports were set, when that's not the case with the old MM.  I'll try to
review the new API bits soon.

For the specific case of the gnome-control-center, it will let you enable/disable modems directly from the "Mobile Broadband" switch only if the modem is already unlocked or if it doesn't need a PIN. If you add the PIN number in the NM settings, it will let you activate the connection directly, though.
