[Ovmsdev] Refactoring MODEM/SIMCOM for v3.3

The initial implementation of this work is in branch for-v3.3, in GitHub. That branch can be used for the upcoming 3.3 release, including potentially breaking changes.

I’d appreciate any feedback. For the SIM5360, the behaviour should be unchanged from the current implementation (except some improvements to edge cases and control logic). The major user visible change is from ’simcom’ to ‘modem’ for the console commands.

Regards, Mark.
