Thanks Jens for the help.
Jens, if I may request, could you instead let me know how to generate
proper rpms from the sources in this case?
That will be a cleaner way, and might help others too who might need these
updated packages as rpms.
Just a pointer to the link explaining how to generate the deb files from
modmemanager/libqmi/libmbim source-files will help :)
