Bug Description

In dialer-app on dual sim phones users will be given an option to unlock a specific modem.
The current api only supports unlocking all modems at once: UnlockAllModems(). We need a way to invoke the unlock screen to a specific modem, like UnlockModem(objectPath).

this is needed for dual-sim phones by the messaging-app and dialer-app as they need to provide the ability to the user to unlock a specific sim

Is this OK for post RTM OTA update or do we need it _now_?

the dialer and messaging app don't provide a direct way to unlock the sim, only a notification that the sim is locked and a link to the system settings. So this is not critical anymore.

the attached branches add a capability for the unconfined applications to request unlocking of a specific SIM by name (ofono modem path):

$ dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest=com.ubuntu.connectivity1 /com/ubuntu/connectivity1/Private com.ubuntu.connectivity1.Private.UnlockModem string:/ril_0
