The patch looks nice, but I have a couple of questions since you're one
of the first pushing one of these SDX6x modems.

Is that protocol pattern fixed on this generation of Qualcomm chips?  It
looks like an extension of what they started with the SDX55 generation,
where the DIAG port was identified by ff/ff/30 across multiple vendors.

Specifically wrt this driver and patch, I wonder if we can/should match
on ff/ff/50 instead of interface number here?  I note that the interface
numbers are allocated sequentionally. Probably in the order these
function are enabled by the firmware? If so, are we sure this is static?
Or could we risk config variants where the RMNET/QMI function have a
different interface number for the same PIDs?

And another possibility you might consider.  Assuming that ff/ff/50
uniquely identifies RMNET/QMI functions regardless of PID, would you
consider a VID+class match to catch all of them?  This would not only
support both the PIDs of this patch in one go, but also any future PIDs
without the need for further driver patches.
