  I'm not sure wether this should be a merge or a sync, the issue is as
follows, the only remaining difference between Ubuntu & Debian packages
is that Ubuntu removed sl-modem-daemon.modutils altogether, yet in
Debian I only removed the alias lines, and the file got renamed to sl-
modem.conf. The reason, is that the install lines in sl-modem.conf
(formerly sl-modem-daemon.modutils) are needed to create the appropriate
device nodes, when the respective kernel modules are loaded. The reason
is that upstream code does not register a sysfs object to create the
device automatically, probably it cannot even do so due to license issue
(sl-modem is BSD licensed). Please note that someone reported on LP bug
#375148 that the bug was solved for him by restoring that modprobe conf

I have sent an email about this issue before, yet I got no reply:
