Philipp Maier 2353ed403f bts: add IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT via PCH transmission
In situations where the PCU is co-located to the BSC, the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT
for downlink TBFs must be sent via RSL and the BSC also must instruct the BTS
to transmit the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT via PCH instead of AGCH. Eventually the
BSC must sent a confirmation message (follow-up patch) where the TLLI is used
as an identifer.

This new method will eventually replace the previous method that uses
the MAC block as an identifier. To remain compatible with older versions
of osmo-bsc, we will keep the old method until osmo-bts is migrated as

This patch also requires new features to be added to the PCU socket
interface the version number of the protocol is incremented from 0x0a to
0x0b. Version 0x0a will remain compatible and use the old method, while
version 0x0b will use the new method introduced with this patch.

Philipp Maier 7932bc8d32 pcuif_proto: rename PCU_IF_SAPI_AGCH_DT to PCU_IF_SAPI_PCH_DT
The current name of PCU_IF_SAPI_AGCH_DT is a bit misleading as it
describes a method to send immediate assignment messages (normally AGCH)
via the PCH. The name in the constant should reflect that correctly

Philipp Maier 8b571ee2e7 pcuif_proto: add indication to communicate E1 parameters
osmo-pcu will also support GPRS via E1 timeslots in a BSC co-located
setup. To avoid duplicate configuration the BSC has to communicate the
E1 parameters (which TS, SS etc.) to the PCU. Lets add a new primitive
to do that.

Pau Espin 5557c0af80 Support Neighbor Address Resolution over PCUIF IPA multiplex
While NACC was initially developed, it became clear there was need for
a way to interact PCU<->BSC in order resolve ARFCN+BSIC into CGI-PS
for later RIM usage.
Hence, this resolution was first (until today) implemented using an out
of bands RPC system using the CTRL interface, which required specific
config to be written and matches in osmo-pcu and osmo-bsc VTY (ip+port
of the CTRL interface to use).
However, this has several shortcomings:
* As explained above, specific configuration is required
* Since recently, we do support BSC redundancy in osmo-bts. Hence the BTS
  may switch to a BSC other than first one. If that happened, that'd mean
  the CTRL interface would still point to the initially configured one,
  which may not be the same currently serving the PCU.

During recent development of ANR related features, a similar need for
PCU<->BSC was required, but this time it was decided to extend the IPA
multiplex of the Abis OML connection to pass PCUIF messages,
transparently forwarded to each side by the BTS.
This has the advantage that connection PCU<->BTS is handled by BTS and
both sides send messages transparently.

Let's switch by default to using this new interface, while still
maintaing the old way for a while (announcing them as deprecated) to
avoid breaking existing deployments until they are upgraded to new
versions of osmo-pcu and osmo-bsc.

Vadim Yanitskiy 17954da56c pcuif_proto.h: extend RACH.ind with TRX / TS numbers
Since there can be multiple PDCH channels configured on different
timeslots, different TRXes, and BTSes, the PTCCH/U handling code
in OsmoPCU needs to know the exact origin of a given RACH.ind.

Otherwise, it is not known which subscriber originated a given
PTCCH/U indication, and hence it is impossible to send PTCCH/D
Timing Advance notification properly.

Fortunately, we can extend the RACH.ind message without even
bumping the protocol version, because every single PDU has a
fixed size defined by the largest message - INFO.ind. In case
if the actual message payload is smaller, the rest is filled
with a constant padding byte (0x00).

Older versions of OsmoPCU will consider the new fields as padding,
while the messages from older OsmoBTS versions will always have
both fields set to 0x00. Since C0/TS0 cannot be configured to
PDCH, this can be easily detected on the other end.

Change-Id I3c1af662c8f0d3d22da200638480f6ef05c3ed1f, OsmoBTS forwards
this via the PCU socket, so we need to pick it up and send it via BSSGP
to the SGSN.
