Summary

Set UQ_MSC_NO_INQUIRY and UQ_MSC_NO_GETMAXLUN quirks for mass storage, which is the initial mode of this dongle.
The modem is shipped with at least two firmware versions: 10.X and 11.X, without ability to update to the newer one.
The 11.X version works more or less fine, but the 10.X one resets after receiving either an SCSI INQUIRY, or a get_max_lun command.
Since both of those are used for automatic quirk detection, this leads to a reset cycle making the device somewhat unusable.

You can upgrade the firmware on some models such as e3372h-153/607 but it's a bit of a hassle.

I guess by firmware version you're referring to Software version, the firmwares are all 20.X or 21.X afaik
