Cell broadcast support for the Linux Mobile Stack

Implement SMS-CB for emergency messages on Linux

Cell broadcast is the capability of the mobile network to send messages to multiple mobile devices in an area. It is the common way to alert users about disasters and emergencies. Phosh is a user friendly, graphical interface for Linux based mobile phones using GTK, GNOME and the wlroots compositor library. It uses ModemManager for it's mobile broadband connections. ModemManager is used on Linux systems to control mobile broadband devices and connections.

The aim of this project is to add cell broadcast support to ModemManager and the necessary UI elements to Phosh so cell broadcast messages sent to devices running this platform can be properly received and displayed.
