Bug Description

I was contacted by a user which has Huawei E620 (usb id 12d1:1001) and ofono didn't recognise the modem. The modem has garbage as serial and ofono does not initialise the modem:

E: ID_SERIAL=ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ_HUAWEI_Mobile_ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ
E: ID_SERIAL_SHORT=ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ
E: ID_BUS=usb
E: ID_USB_INTERFACES=:ffffff:080650:
E: ID_VENDOR_FROM_DATABASE=Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

My Huawei E1552 again has serial as empty (null in ofono) and initialisation succeeds.

It would be useful if we could have a mechanism for gathering thousands of opt-in users' metadata, to see if this is a common occurrence, and if there are patterns to help us spot it.

Here's a distro patch which should fix the issue. It also changes ofono to use cdbs.

A test package is here:

(The test package also contains upstart and apport changes.)

Thanks for the patch. We shouldn't convert the package to use CDBS really though. Instead, I'll just update it to source format 3.0, which uses quilt automatically
