tty can't do all this. We have similar things with stuff like CAIF. Modem
has gone from pretending to be a serial port (tty) to appearing as a
smart multi-function controller.

tty is the right way to expose any actual 'AT' modem emulation type
stuff, but it's not really relevant for most uses of a modern 3G/4G modem
- also also too slow !
