That is not a kernel problem. I find it hard to believe that Chrome OS
would not gladly accept code to resolve this issue, can't you put it
into the modemmanager or whatever Chrome OS uses to handle their
wireless modems?

As for Android, sorry, you are on your own, you will just have to deal
with the individual OEMs that are incorporating your hardware :(

We have a solution, usb_modeswitch, any user should be using that.

Don't circumvent horribly governed userspace projects by getting changes
into the Linux kernel. Go fix those projects instead.

Good luck,
