I'm not entirely sure if u-boot is really the right location to do this.  

Having it in u-boot would make sure that there is no conflict between native
phone gsmd (plus higher level apps) and the passthrough/host access.

Heving it in userspace on linux would mean that the phone could still be used as
a PDA.  Also, an userspace implementation could probably even be accessed via
Bluetooth at some later point.  Plus it could be extended to just give access to
one of the demultiplexed DLC's, 'sharing' the phone.

Also, having it not in u-boot means we don't need to do a u-boot update (which
is critical).
