That's a bit of a separate issue.  The current issue is that when you
power-off the device it doesn't power off completely (not when you
shut down gsmd, which may never have been running, or there may be
more than one running when there's multiplexing).  gsmd is not
requesting powering up of the modem, it assumes the modem is up the
moment it starts, so it should also not deal with powering it down.
