  Add support for newer Novatel devices to airprime driver

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “linux” source package in Hardy:
  Fix Released
Status in “linux” source package in Karmic:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  SRU Justification:

  Impact: Addition of new device signatures should have no impact to
  existing devices.

  Fix: Simple addition of two device signatures to the device id table.

  Testcase: See bug report


  Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.24-23-generic

  I'm pretty sure the older U727 is correctly recognized by airprime:

       { USB_DEVICE(0x1410, 0x4100) }, /* Novatel Wireless U727 */

  I've found a later revision of the U727 with a different product
  string, and the U760 has yet another different string.  Support is
  enabled by adding the following lines to airprime.c and recompiling
  the module.

     { USB_DEVICE(0x1410, 0x5100) }, /* Novatel Wireless U727 newer */
     { USB_DEVICE(0x1410, 0x6000) }, /* Novatel Wireless U760 */

  Patched airprime.c attached
