This patch is the first step to implement tethering in Plasma NM. 

Tethering is term used to describe the use of a bluetooth device as the mean to access the Internet. There are two types of Bluetooth networks in tethering: DUN (Dial up Network) and PAN (Personnal Area Network). Both are very similar from Plasma NM point of view. In DUN you can use the bluetooth device (usually a cell phone) as a dial up modem (/dev/rfcomm0).

The patch slightly changes GsmNetworkInterface class to let BluetoothInterface inherit from it.
Tested against KDE SC 4.6.2, works with Gsm phones. Support to Cdma phones still missing.
