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.
We are building with libosmo-sccp tag 'old_sua' until the new sigtran has
been applied. Since osmo-iuh commit
"migrate osmo-hnbgw to libosmo-sigtran's SCCP/M3UA"
osmo-iuh requires libosmo-sccp master. A similar 'old_sua' tag is in place in
osmo-iuh.git, to match libosmo-sccp 'old_sua'. Do that to fix the jenkins
build of --enable-iu.
* use LT_INIT instead of AC_PROG_RANLIB
* remove redundant libbsc entries
The default (for both manual and .deb builds) is to use shared build (as
before) - the static build is entirely optional.

While fixing potentially incorrect memory access, the check for maximum
number of supported BTS features was incorrectly adjusted instead of
feature vectore length check next to it. Fix this by adjusting checks
properly and adding comments to avoid future confusion.
The error was introduced in a60bb3dd28.
When we are performing Rx sensitivity testing on a BTS, we want to
deactivate the connection failure criterion / radio link timeout, i.e.
no matter how many SACCH frames in uplink are failed to decode, the BTS
should never close the channel.
OsmoBTS Change-Id I736f21f6528db5c16fa80cdb905af20673797be5 covers a way
how this behavior can be requested from the BTS via an OML attribute.
This patch adds support to the BSC to actually set that attribute.
Do not use this in production networks, as the BTS will keep open radio
channels indefinitely even if the phone is gone and no longer
transmitting anything. This is a pure testing feature.
Previously the SI generation lead to setting the BCCH SIs for all TRX in
a multi-trx setup. This is because we create the SIs globally but
si_valid appears to be limited to the 'current' trx. Warn if we attempt
to set SIs for the BCCH on a trx that does not have a BCCH.

To support segmented SI2quater as per 3GPP TS 44.018 we'll have to
support multiple SI messages (up to 16 for SI2q) for a given type in
contrast to existing 1:1 mapping:
* expand storage space to hold up to 16 SI messages (spec limit)
* add assertions for budget calculations
* generate multiple SI2q messages
* adjust SI2q-related tests
* use precise check for number of SIq messages instead of approximate
* move SI2quater related defines to shared header
* add define from OsmoBTS which checks for presence of a given SI
message in gsm_bts struct. Rename it to avoid conflicts with OsmoBTS
code and to match naming conventions of similar macros.
osmo_talloc_replace_string() was introducd into libosmocore in 2014, see
There's no reason for us to re-implement this as bsc_replace_string
In addition to compile-time defined BTS model features we also need
run-time BTS features reported by BTS via OML. This should be shared by
BSC and BTS. To accommodate for this, add following:
* features bitvec to gsm_bts struct
* features descriptions
* comments to avoid confusion between 2 feature sets
* helper functions to set/query particular feature
* upper boundary on number of supported features and assertion for it
Rename gsm_bts_has_feature() -> gsm_btsmodel_has_feature() and adjust
type signature to match gsm_btsmodel_set_feature() function and avoid
confusion with upcoming functions to check/set BTS features reported
Since commit b4999b60d4 we created PCU
sockets at hard-coded paths in the filesystem by default for all BTSs.
This is inflexible and prevents the use of multiple BSC instances on a
single filesystem, or the placement of the sockets in a more secure
location than /tmp.
The new approach with this patch is that
* no PCU sockets are created by default
* only for those BTSs where a 'pcu-socket' is configured via VTY,
the socket will actually be created
Sometimes it is useful to manually activate (or decativate) a given
logical channel from the VTY. Doing this on the BSC (rather than the
BTS) ensures that the BSC knows that this timeslot / channel is
allocated and there is no risk to have clashes between the BSC "owning"
the resources and the BTS allocating some by itself.
The pcu sends us an already made up MAC-Block that contains the
paging request. pcu_sock.c is parsing this paging request
wrongly and fails silently, which results into a dropping of the
This commit fixes the parsing problems.
The PCU sends imm.ass messages in response to a rach request. Those
messages need to be forwarded to RSL in order to get them send. This
commit introduces the required functionality for that
Ericsson allows to attach a reference to immediate assignments. A
confirmation of the transmission is then sent back, but only containing
the reference, not the whole RLC packet.
The BSC-located PCU case looks to the PCU like a BTS-located PCU with
"direct PHY" access, i.e. the data related primitives are communicated
from the PCU directly towards the TRAU Frames or whatever transport
method is used between CCU and PCU.
In order to make the PCU believe that, we need to pass in a 'layer 1
handle'. As we don't use it, we can just pass any non-zero value and be
Instead of 20, use the actual buffer sizes of struct sw_load, which are 255.
Previous code would truncate a longer string at 20 without(!) NUL termination.
In the _len members, store the actual length copied. In previous code, if the
source string were longer than 20, we would store only 20 (without NUL term)
but still reflect the longer length of the source string.
Fix both of these issues for sw_load.file_id / file_id_len and
sw_load.file_version / file_version_len.
Send SMS RP ERROR with a failure cause that relates to

The gsm_data_shared.h header is installable and used by OsmoBTS so it
should not include any private (non-installable headers) to avoid
OsmoBTS' build failures.
Request BTS attributes via OML on connection and parse the response:
request/parse incoming response as sw-config.
Note: only basic BTS-wide KV attributes wrapped in sw-config are
supported for now.
Previously only the existance of bts->si_common.si2quater_neigh_list was
checked but not the actual number of EARFCNs in it. Fix it by using
si2q_earfcn_count() and adjust tests accordingly. While at it - reformat
tests to include extra information.
The correctness was checked manually by inspecting GSMTAP output.
In preparation for extended SI2q messages:
* add SI2q-specific accessor macro
* add *_offset variables to gsm_bts struct
* internalize memory check while generating rest octets - introduce
budget concept (number of bits available in a given message)
* internalize *arfcn_size() functions as they are not needed outside of
* change rest octets generation to work with gsm_bts struct directly
* do not generate rest octets if no SI2q is necessary
* adjust unit tests accordingly (cosmetic changes only to avoid
Requires: I92e12e91605bdab9916a3f665705287572434f74 in libosmocore
* use define for number of attributes instead of magic number
* add sub_model to gsm_bts struct
* expand number of BTS features
* mark attributes parameter to abis_nm_get_attr() as const
The VTY config allows above 32bit range extensions, but
db_subscriber_alloc_exten() was unable to generate extensions outside of 32bit.
Add VTY regression test and fix the problem by using proper 64bit types.
Fix parsing of the 'subscriber-create-on-demand random' VTY: atoi() is not
enough to include the specified range of 1-9999999999.
Use atoll() instead to ensure a large enough number space also on 32bit
(Note: for me, atoll() truncates at 32 bit when <stdlib.h> is not included.)
Add a VTY regression test for this.
