Oops... forgot about that. I've been sitting on that patch because 
libqmi v1.0 has some bugs that have been fixed, but they haven't set a 
version number since then, so it's just got a sha for the version 
number. I'll go ahead and submit that, though.

Yes, actually, I do that with libqmi, so I'm familiar with that.
