Hmm not sure if it makes sense to try to represent packet data as
a virtual serial port :) But sure let's at least investigate it.

I don't know if it's using the same commands as the ttyUSB* GNSS device
seems disabled. From what I understand, gobi2000 has just $gps_start and
$gps_stop commands for the ttyUSB* GNSS device. Those don't exist
here. Also the command style seems to follow the modem firmware for
various other devices on the modem.

OK yeah this could be a generic sysfs option.

Well we still have /dev/gnss open, so GNSS stays active and won't get
disabled until the device is closed. The shared GPIOs with the USB PHY
are used to signal port traffic.

It seems to regain the lock in about one or two seconds, so it's some
kind of modem PM state for allowing the SoC to idle it seems.
