The fact that the firmware implementation has the ability to change the
endpoints is unrelated to Kristian's case, and that alone is
justification for this to be quirked in the driver. People other than
Kristian will undoubtedly use the functionality, on platforms less
limited.

Also most Huawei modems have the ability to change their layout and
configuration just like the EP06 via the U2DIAG and SETPORT commands.
