Cinterion MV31-W modem support

Hi All,

I just got information that the MV31-W mPCIe variant was tested on x86 only, and only on Ubuntu using this driver:
In the driver code you can find mapping of hardcoded magical modem physical address (wdt = ioremap(0x0B017008, 4);) that fails miserably on ARM.
And that driver is not in sync with the latest work on MHI modem driver in linux-next kernel.
Getting rid of this watchdog allows the code to compile and load but the device does not respond to MBIM and AT commands, which is consistent with behavior when using the drivers from latest linux-next branch.
So we'll be moving from mPCIe to USB variant of the modem, and then I'll see how it works with Modem Manager, once we get a new modem.

Hey Tomasz,

Please post your changes to add support for the WWAN subsystem in the Cinterion plugin once you have them working properly.
Will they always have the Thales PCI vid 0x1269?
