[chirp_users] Chirp not identifying Kenwood TM-V71

Modem-manager comes from NetworkManager (which I hate btw).  It's evil 
and from what I can tell, can't be disabled today.  From all the 
searching I did, the easiest way to stop it from messing with serial 
ports is to find it with "which" and rename it to something that 
NetworkManager can't find.  Effective but such an ugly hack.
