LG 5350 cell phone

I don't know if anyone is still interested in this topic or not but I just
made some progress today (got sick of not being able to use my
straight through USB cable with FreeBSD).  Here's what I've got at
the moment under 4.9-RELEASE.

I went tracing through /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/umodem.c (good old
printf statements) to see what exactly it was that was causing the
"reboots" of my cellphone.  I came to the conclusion that it probably
wasn't something in umodem.c that needed tweaking so I went
nosing around in /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs again.

As the phone doesn't start misbehaving until umodem attempts to
attach to it I was able to just leave it at ugen0 and ask usbdevs for
the vendor and product codes (usbdevs -v).  I put those into
usbdevs and the diff looks like this:

*** usbdevs.orig        Tue Sep  2 09:35:17 2003
--- usbdevs     Thu Jan  8 15:12:03 2004

  /* General Instruments (Motorola) products */
  product GENERALINSTMNTS SB5100        0x5100  SURFboard SB5100 Cable modem

Having been down this route before without success (usbdevs itself notes
that simply adding IDs does not add any functionality at all) and noticing
a call to /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usb_quirks.c from umodem.c during
initialization I took a look over there and added this:

*** usb_quirks.c.orig   Wed Feb 12 08:05:57 2003
--- usb_quirks.c        Thu Jan  8 16:03:35 2004
*** 83,88 ****
--- 83,90 ----
   { USB_VENDOR_HP, USB_PRODUCT_HP_815C,                    ANY,   { UQ_BROKEN_BIDIR }},
   { USB_VENDOR_HP, USB_PRODUCT_HP_810C,                    ANY,   { UQ_BROKEN_BIDIR }},
   { USB_VENDOR_HP, USB_PRODUCT_HP_830C,                    ANY,   { UQ_BROKEN_BIDIR }},
   /* YAMAHA router's ucdDevice is the version of farmware and often changes. */

After compiling a new kernel with these changes incorporated
(don't forget to run a make -f Makefile.usbdevs if you've got
old kernel compile stuff still around!!!) I now can use the phone as
a modem!!!  I can set the speed up to 230400 (matching the 
setting indicated in the phone's menu) and the transfer speeds are every
bit as good as on the iBook now.  This is what dmesg now reports:

umodem0: Qualcomm CDMA Technologies MSM phone, rev 1.01/0.00, addr 2, iclass 2/2
umodem0: data interface 1, has CM over data, has break

The only issue remaining is when I try to bring the connection down.
When I do this ppp reports:

Warning: deflink: Unable to set physical to speed 0

and on the console I see this:

putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks

putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks
putc to a clist with no reserved cblocks

These messages appear to be harmless (ppp is down now and
I can reestablish a connection without problem), but obviously
it isn't the best behaved.

Would anyone care to chip in with suggestions and/or advice?
