In addition to previous concerns in this thread addressed in
, it seems the upstream is convinced that the usb-modeswitch is
needed, and kernel quirks are not either enough or the way to go: (scroll down)

I think the udev package's modem-modeswitch point is anyway very
relevant, if it's obsolete and somewhat broken. It's currently
included in Ubuntu's udev package.
