I guess we'll soon see full ModemManager QMI support with the speed
Aleksander, ttuttle and the others are working :-)

But if you want to play with this while waiting, then the attached perl
script should help you on the way.  Note that it has lots of well-known
"i-dont-care" bugs, like wanting to write a file to /etc/network/run/.
It was primarily meant for my own testing.  But it does illustrate the
sort of minimum QMI commands for starting and stopping a connection.

BTW, I've found that the cdc-wdm device probing isn't entirely correct
either.  It should first try to match against USB interface in case the
USB device provides multiple QMI/wwan interfaces.  But that shouldn't be
a problem for you.
