Thanks for taking time to test the patch set.  I should keep calling
the carrier to get a PUK code...

Do you by chance keep the MBIM debug trace during your debugging? That
would be very helpful.

Unfortunately, when PIN1 is disabled, it's not necessarily true that
we have the max no. of remaining attempts for PIN1 as a prior enable
PIN1 operation with a wrong PIN could have decreased that. With the
unfortunate limitation imposed by MBIM_CID_PIN query, I don't think we
can always get the correct no. of remaining attempts for PIN1 (maybe
that's by design, who knows). For example, we can't determine the
correct remaining attempts for a disabled PIN1 when MM starts.
However, we may be able to improve the situation a bit when MM is
running by making mm_iface_modem_update_lock_info preserve what we
have learned from a prior MBIM_CID_PIN response.  That's what I'm
trying to address with this patch set.

Now I take another look at the issue, it appears that we only need to
specially handle updating/preserving PIN1 from MM's perspective. There
is no need to query the remaining attempts for PUK1 (or other PIN
types for that matter as MM doesn't use them).

In MMSimMbim::update_modem_unlock_retries(), it seems like we could simply do:

  if (pin_type == MBIM_PIN_TYPE_PIN1)
      unlock_retries = mm_iface_modem_get_unlock_retries
(MM_IFACE_MODEM (modem));
      unlock_retries = mm_unlock_retries_new();
  mm_unlock_retries_set (unlock_retries,
mm_modem_lock_from_mbim_pin_type (pin_type), remaining_attempts);
  mm_iface_modem_update_unlock_retries (MM_IFACE_MODEM (modem), unlock_retries);
