Hi Jiri

Rm interface is used to describe an application processor tethered to
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. modems. Since these are netdevices,
the term RmNet is used. I don't think there are published standards
available for this but I can provide relevant information and
document it as well.

rmnet was used for a USB based physical transport earlier, hence
this platform agnostic multiplexing driver was named as rmnet_data.
