Backport GSM 3G broadband feature to Sugar 0.84

This patch series is a backport of the basic 3G functionality from 0.88.
Tested in F11-XO1-PY for some time with actual users in the field. It works with USB Option modems such as Huawei, as long as they don't need switching from mass-storage to comm mode.
Modems can be switched permanently by sending them a Hayes sequence. Automatic switching would require backporting udev from Fedora 12 or writing custom rules to invoke usb_modeswitch. I'm working on a solution, but the GSM functionality in Sugar is usable independently of it.
Backported patches for sugar and sugar-artwork are here:
They should apply cleanly in numeric order to the 0.84 branch using "git am *.patch".
