The patch is still applied when building the debian package and it looks that 
we cant get rid of it yet.

Maybe we could rework it so that it does not touch code in serial port class, 
move it completely to gta04 plugin and commit it.

Or we could commit - ugly as it is - in case that reworking is not possible 
and if it would help people building from sources.

I dont know way how to 100% avoid it.

1/ without AT_OPSYS=0,2 i could make the reenumeration happen always.

2/ with AT_OPSYS=0,2 it happened very rarely.

3/ with kernel patch + 3G enabled it happened just once in last 3 weeks or so.

Btw in latest release when the reenumeration happens, it's logged to 


Could people who use GTA04 as phone report contents of the file? This could 
help us better to monitor the situation.
