Option is likely the right driver for this device.

qcaux was mainly for mobile phones that have a TTY (often cdc-acm) as
the modem port and a secondary DIAG/DM port driven by qcaux.  The DM
port doesn't have an interrupt endpoint thus it's not a normal modem
port requiring the larger buffers of option and its control signaling.

qcserial (as Bjorn mentioned) is only for actual Gobi-type devices with
the specific layouts and the firmware loading requirement where the 1K
and 2K devices start in a special 1-port mode waiting for firmware and
then become 4-port devices on firmware reboot.
