assignment_fsm: fix channel allocator preferences
When the MSC allocates a channel through the ASSIGNMENT REQUEST, it may ask for a TCH/H and a TCH/F at the same time and tell which of the two types it prefers. The process of channel allocation currently selects, based on the BTS, MSC and MS capabilites exactly one apropriate codec/rate (e.g. TCH/H) and then tries to allocate it. If that allocation fails, there is no way to try the second choice and the assignment fails. For example: The MSC asks for TCH/F and TCH/H, prefering TCH/F, then the channel allocator will try TCH/F and if it fails (all TCH/F are currently in use), then TCH/H is never tried. Since the BSC currently only trys the first best codec/rate that is supported it also ignores the preference. Lets fix those problems by including the preference information and both possible codec/rate settings into the channel allocation decision.
