The prober can be re-run after the desktop application has prompted for
the PIN. It's easy enough to stick a callout method on USB modem devices
to do that. The advantage of that is that hal can act as a cache of the
data, rather than requiring every application that may want to use the
device to perform its own probing on every open.
