[hsflinux] RING indication not being sent

the modem driver should send the 'RING' message when it is detected.

Please make sure that you have selected the right country/region when you 
installed the modem driver. You can see what country is currently active with 
the 'hsfconfig --info' command in a root shell. You can change this setting 
with the 'hsfconfig' command in a root shell.

You should also try to use the modem to connect to another machine for a data 
connection or a IP connection to test the modem driver.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the output 
of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hsfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
