This doesn't directly affect cxacru users, because firmware has
parameters to automatically reactivate the line, which is set by

However, given that other modems don't seem to have this feature (AFAICT
from your, Aurelio's and Matthieu's messages), it may make sense to add
line reactivation to usbatm.  And perhaps status polling too.  This will
need sorta .status_poll and .line_start methods to struct usbatm_driver.

Module reloading should do too.  But automatic reactivation is more
convenient for sure.  BTW is PPP session preserved then?
