Bug Description

In order to support devices with LTE modems, a new APN type "IA" needs to be supported by the APN Editor.

This APN is sent to the modem using a RIL_REQUEST_INITIAL_ATTACH and is sent much earlier than a normal the request to setup a data connection.

ofono will first attempt to use an IA APN with this request, but if not found, it will use a default Internet APN instead.

If specified, this APN will be used exclusively for initial attach purposes.

This is a requirement for arale, and will need to be added to vivid for arale RTM, or at minimum in the first subsequent OTA.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Networking#apn-mobile>: "The main “APN” screen should always have three items: “MMS APN…”, “Internet APN…”, and “LTE APN…”..."
