wvdialconf bug workaround

Rerwin found another strange bug when using 'wvdialconf' to probe for modems. The 'Modem' entry in /etc/wvdial.conf can get set to '/dev/modem', but /dev/modem is a symlink to 'modem', that is, to itself. Peculiar situation.

I have modified /usr/sbin/modemprobe to workaround that problem.

However, /dev/modem should never be a symlink to itself, and I think that I have fixed where that was happening. I also put in a test in rc.sysinit to catch that invalid link.
