This is the first step in creating this repository from the legacy openbsc.git.
Like all other Osmocom repositories, keep the autoconf and automake files in
the repository root. openbsc.git has been the sole exception, which ends now.
If a second ends, we add the number of events in that just-ended second
to the number of events in the currently running minute. The same happens
at the end of a minute: We add the number of events in that just-ended
minute into the number of events of the still-running hour, etc.
This gives a much more meaningful numbers and we don't end up with
"12 events per second, but 0 events per minute" kind of situations
A 'rate counter' is a counter that counts events but also keeps
track of the rate of events (per second, minute, hour and day).
'rate counters' are generally abstracted in 'rate counter groups',
which are instances of a 'rate counter group description'. This
way we can have e.g. a description describing what kind of counters
a BTS (or TRX) has - and we can then create one instance of that
group for every BTS or TRX that exists.
Right now I'm seeing crashes when removing a link and deleting
it and I need this hack to make it not crash. We will have to
understand if llist_for_each_entry_safe has a bug or if we are
doing something bad with the list (anchors not properly initialized).
Before this patch, there was a bug in the code caused by a memcpy
from one data structure to another. unfortuantely the data structures
were not the same, so we have to explicitly iterate over the array
and assign the structure members manually.
* I'm doing a nonblocking connect and for this I need to select
on writable and the first thing I need to do is to check the
SOL_SOCKET SO_ERROR state. I realize this by setting a different
cb on the embedded bfd during setup and then go back to the real
