Bug Description

[SRU Justification]

[Impact]
The Quectel SDX24 EM160R-GL 4G LTE CAT16 PCIE Modem and Foxconn SDX55 T99W175 5G sub6 PCIE Modem are not supported in 5.11 kernel yet. The new WWAN framework and driver support are required to be backported to detect and control the new WWAN modules.

[Fix]
Backport the WWAN framework and drivers support from mainline kernel 5.13.

[Test Case]
Verify whether the Quectel/Foxconn WWAN module are detected or not. And use either `mmcli` commands or NetworkSettings Panel to test the connection.

[Where problem could occur]
Since the WWAN framework is totally new which makes use of the existing MHI bus drivers and protocols, it should be compatible with old WWAN modules. The regression can be considered as low.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-focal' to 'verification-done-focal'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-focal' to 'verification-failed-focal'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
