Let's remove "Linux" because we're talking about kernels in general and "CPU"
after modem for consistency with what preceds.
Going with: " That hardware abstraction layer will implement the protocol to
communicate with the modem. The kernel will then forward the communication
between the hardware abstraction layer and the modem. "
