Just one other idea: Why not look at the kernel driver? It should give
you a pretty good idea about which devices are modems.

'option', 'sierra', 'qcserial' are all pretty much guaranteed to be
modems. 'pl2303', 'ftdi_sio', 'io_edgeport' are likely not. Except if
you have an old serial modem behind them..
