If you could run usbdevs -v and then jot down the IDs you can add those to
the top of u3g.c. You'll have to add a quirk like for other sierra devices
that show up as mass storage and need to be kicked into modem mode.
It pretends to be a mass storage device (with drivers on it) and after
installation switches to modem mode.
Or that's my guess.
