The CAIF interface can be selected by using the following types:
[snip caif_config.h]
/**
 * enum caif_phy_preference  - Types of physical HW interfaces
 *				       towards modem defined in CAIF stack
 * @CAIF_PHYPREF_UNSPECIFIED:	Default physical interface
 * @CAIF_PHYPREF_LOW_LAT:	Default physical interface for low-latency
 *				      traffic
 * @CAIF_PHYPREF_HIGH_BW:	Default physical interface for high-bandwidth
 *				      traffic
 * @CAIF_PHYPREF_LOOP:		TEST Loopback interface, simulating modem
 *				      responses
 *
 * For client convenience, two special types are defined:
 * CAIF_PHYPREF_LOW_LAT is the preferred low-latency physical link.
 * Typically used for "control" purposes.
 * CAIF_PHYPREF_HIGH_BW is the preferred high-bandwidth physical link.
 * Typically used for "payload" purposes.
 */
...
enum caif_phy_preference {
	CAIF_PHYPREF_UNSPECIFIED,
	CAIF_PHYPREF_LOW_LAT,
	CAIF_PHYPREF_HIGH_BW,
	CAIF_PHYPREF_LOOP
};
[snip caif_socket.h]
...
/**
 * struct caif_channel_opt - CAIF channel connect options.
 * @priority:		Priority of the channel (between 0 and 0x1f)
 * @link_selector:	Selector for the physical link.
 *			      (see enum caif_phy_preference in caif_config.h)
 * @link_name:		Physical link to use. This is the instance name of the
 *			      CAIF Physical Driver.
 */
struct caif_channel_opt {
	u_int16_t  priority;
	u_int16_t  link_selector;
	char	   link_name[16];
};
...
/** enum caif_socket_opts - CAIF option values for getsockopt and setsockopt
 * @CAIFSO_CHANNEL:		Used to set the connect options on a CAIF
 *				socket. (struct caif_config_opt). This can only
 *				be set before connecting.
[end snip]

CAIFSO_CHANNEL is used for specifying the physical interface to use for the 
CAIF Channel. You can select the type of interface to use
by setting link_selector:
CAIF_PHYPREF_LOW_LAT will typically be used for AT (or other control traffic),
and CAIF_PHYPREF_HIGH_BW for IP traffic.
When the CAIF interfaces registers itself it will inform about their type,
(low-latency or high-bandwidth). This approach assumes that you have only one
modem, but multiple links to it (e.g. USB and UART). 

But you can also specify interface by name using link_name. In this case
you specify the name of the interface to use. I think this would support
your use case with multiple modems attached.
