Not quite... we have yet to switch over to ofono for 3g support on
desktop, this is by default, still handled by modem-manager.

That said, it's possible to run ofono on the desktop, and this might be
a good time to see if we can merge the touch ofono override job and
default ofono job instead of having to maintain a systemd drop-in for
ofono on touch.
