Depending on the incompatibilities, the changes should go to the
Cinterion plugin (if Cinterion specific) or to the Generic plugin (if
generic things we didn't support yet). If it is a generic AT command,
to know if it is one or the other, you can lookup the relevant doc in
the 3GPP reference (ETSI 27.007). If the incompatibility is something
in that reference that we don't support yet, it should go to the
Generic plugin,
