3G modem advancement

Rerwin has continued to work on improving use of 3G modems in Puppy and has released the '-10' version:

I am attempting to incorporate this into Woof builds. One problem is that Woof builds are using a later kernel. Anyway, I'll do my best and please test Jaunty Puppy alpha7 and report to rerwin.

Here are the changes I have made:

/etc/modules/firmware.dep.2.6.29.2
These lines are added:
ipw:ipw.ko
ipwireless:ipwireless.ko
motomodem:moto_modem.ko

This line is removed:
usbserial:usbserial.ko

/etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG
The PCI_OVERRIDES variable is now:
PCI_OVERRIDES='dmfe 0x00001282 0x00009102 #r_hughes reports tulip module not work.
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007071 #rerwin: Supercedes option module for these 3G USB modems
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007111
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007071
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007051
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007031
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00007011
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006911
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006811
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006771
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006751
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006731
hso 0x00000AF0 0x00006711
'


/etc/udev/rules.d/
Previously had these files:
51-usb_modemswitch-option-0x05c6-0x1000.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-0x1e0e-0xf000.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-Novatel-0x1410-0x5010.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-ZTE-Onda-0x19d2-0x2000.rules
51-usb_modeswitch-option.rules
60-udev-modem.rules #updated 8 May by rerwin
90-udev-rule-trace.rules

And these are the new files:
51-hso.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-0x05c6-0x1000.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-0x1e0e-0xf000.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-Novatel-0x1410-0x5010.rules
51-usb_modemswitch-option-ZTE-Onda-0x19d2-0x2000.rules
51-usb_modeswitch-cdcacm.rules
51-usb_modeswitch-option.rules
51-usb_modeswitch-sierra-0x1199-0x0fff.rules
90-udev-rule-trace.rules


/lib/modules/all-firmware
These are either new or updates:
cdcacm.tar.gz
hso.tar.gz
ipwireless.tar.gz
ipw.tar.gz
motomodem.tar.gz
nozomi.tar.gz
option.tar.gz
sierra.tar.gz

I have removed:
usbserial.tar.gz

usb_modeswitch-0.9.7.pet
This has:
/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch
And I have added:
/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch.sh
/etc/usb_modeswitch.conf

...these two were in rerwin's other tarball, 3G_pupdial-wireless-10.tar.gz.
