Except that bugs in some MBIM implementations forced us to change the
default to always send ZLPs for MBIM devices.  See the comment starting

And since the padding is pointless if followed by a ZLP, it was disabled
for all devices where we send ZLPs:

So effectively:  No, we do not do the padding for (most) MBIM devices.

Hmm, except that this was changed sometime between 3.10 and 3.14.  So if
we are talking about 3.10 then we do pad for MBIM too, yes.
