1) sudo apt-get install ser2net
2) edit /etc/ser2net.conf to include

2000:raw:600:/dev/ttySAC0:38400 8DATABITS NONE 1STOPBIT

3) socat TCP4: PIPE:gsm.pipe

would at least give you "gsm.pipe" that allows you to read and write
to GSM. If you really need a tty with all the odd ioctls then it's bit
more challenging and you probably want to use

"fusd-kor-source - Source for the fusd kernel module"

to build a serial port redirector.
