Until the GPS support is added into the u-blox plugin or something like the 
ID_MM_GPS_PORT flag is added, could MM safely just ignore the GPS port like in 
this patch?  Once support is added, the flagging of the GPS ports can be 
changed/removed.  Right now there is a 20 second timeout penalty because of the 
GPS and logging ports and it would be nice to eliminate that.
