usb-modeswitch 1.1.9

The last upgrade was 1.1.7 back in March 2011:

I have upgraded to 1.1.9, and the data to 2011-08-05 (27KB, 14KB):

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-common/usb-modeswitch-data-20110805.pet

The PET is not quite a pristine usb-modeswitch, I have patched a line into /lib/udev/usb_modeswitch to call my script /usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch_status.
Also, logging is turned on in /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf, required by my script.

Usb-modeswitch is partly broken on my laptop, and I have been discussing this with Josh on the usb-modeswitch forum:

However, I implemented a workaround in usb_modeswitch_status, that will create /dev/gsmmodem if it has not been auto-created. This is just a temporary fix until Josh fixes it officially.
