I don't know what happens here.  But Sierra use interface numbers 12
and 13 for MBIM, so that is correct.  There might be a problem that the
Virtualbox USB virtualisation expectes consecutive interface numbering.
I believe the Linux usbip implementation has a similar problem.

No need to waste any time on testing this.   It was just in case you
still had Windows on the laptop and too much time on your hand :)
