Changes (by greenfeld):

  * status:  new => closed
  * next_action:  diagnose => no action
  * resolution:  => invalid


 This is ideally invalid; with 12.1.0 os17 on a XO-1.75 I can spot my CDMA
 modem with the appropriate usb_modeswitch tweak.

 In order to see it in the nm-applet view, I have to create a connection
 with nm-connection-editor first.  In order to see the modem in nm-
 connection-editor, it has to be plugged in prior to use.

 Once everything is setup I can get online through the CDMA modem.  But
 Network Manager in 12.1.0 either disconnects actively when idle, or the
 modem's own idle mode is causing the XO to disconnect and not see the
 modem without reattaching the cable.

 nm-applet no longer reports modem's RF level though, which is a regression
 ideally internal to nm-applet or NM.
