Yes... I've been playing with the Lenovo driver/firmware package to
learn a bit about these modems, and I did notice that there is a
FCC_AUTH => 01
setting in the
file (which AFAIU contains all the Lenovo specific settings). I assume
that controls a NVRAM setting for this functionality. Which means that
we can disable ;)
But that's too risky an experiment on a laptop which almost certainly
verifies that the installed modem is a "geniune Lenovo part", and might
refuse to boot if it isn't.

functionality as well.

I believe the posted patches were functional, but there were some
outstanding questions on how to properly integrate it in
MM/libmbim/libqmi. Is that correct, Aleksander?
