In l1sap_ph_data_ind() we can use msgb_pull_l2() which is an exact
implementation of the functionality there.
In l1sap_tch_ind(), the existing code is actually wrong by making the
assumption that the msgb contains exactly an entire osmo_phsap_prim.
Better to also dynamically compute the number of bytes to ensure
we only pull those ahead of the L2 header, no matter what their exact
LOGL1S() already prints enough context information.
During the process of bootstrapping, it may happen that System
Information Type 3 is not yet received from the BSC, while the
BTS already needs to transmit a block on AGCH or PCH.
Since the RSL link is established later than the OML link, it's
kind of expected, so we should not log it as error.
osmo-bts-virtual uses GSMTAP over multicast groups to communicate
with one or more virtphy instances. There are some well-known default
multicast groups, but those can also be overridden via the VTY.
The problem is: If you actually try that, osmo-bts-virtual will abort,
as we try to talloc_free() when using osmo_talloc_replace_string()
on the constant default string.
The proper solution is to talloc_strdup() the constant default string
when setting the default value in bts_model_phy_link_set_defaults().
Compiler from raspberrypi4 warns/errors about those.
For osmo-bts-sysmo the MPH INFO MEAS IND indication is still sent
separately. Lets merge the measurement information into the PH DATA
The struct members ber10k, ta_offs_256bits and lqual_cb in ph_data_ind
are only populated when the pcu_direct flag is not set.
The pcu_direct flag is set when the pcu is directly attached to the phy
and all pcu related traffic (pdtch) is handled without sending it through
osmo-bts-sysmo. For those cases osmo_bts_sysmo will not make use of
those struct members, even if they were populated. When the PCU is not
directly attached the data is needed because it is sent through the
pcu_sock to the PCU.
Lets remove the check because it is not required. Also in future patches
where measurement indications and data / tch indicatins are merged the
struct members are also needed to carry the measurement information for
SACCH as well.
This line appears tens of times per second when a call is ongoing,
making it impossible to follow logs on INFO level.
Some use LOGPC, but were used after a LOGP with a trailing newline.
Let's simply add some defines/macros to be able to include it into a
normal LOGP easily insted of having a function.

The MPH INFO MEAS IND indication, which contains the uplink measurement
data is sent in parallel to the PH DATA and TCH indications as a
separate indications. This makes the overall uplink measurement data
processing unnecessarly complex. So lets put the data that is relevant
for measurement into the PH DATA and TCH indications directly.
This change only affects osmo-bts-trx at the moment. In order to keep
the upper layers (l1sap.c) compatible we add an autodection to switch
between separate measurement indications and included measurement data.

The variable irssi_full_sum is not populated with a dummy value when we
are not able to compute irssi_full_sum. Instead we mistakenly write
MEASUREMENT_DUMMY_IRSSI to ber_full_sum, which is wrong
The timing advance controller that is implemented in loops.c of
osmo-bts-trx only works for osmo-bts-trx and not for any of the phy
based bts. Lets move the timing advance controller into the common part
and make it available for every bts. Also lets add a unit-test.
Due to relatively small training sequence of Access Bursts, there
can be frequent false-positives (basically noise). Fortunately,
we can distinguish them from the real Access Bursts by checking
the signal measurements attached to them (BER, ToA and C/I).
Let's reduce verbosity of logging messages as they are mostly
useful for debugging and may confuse the users / operators.
rsl.c: In function ‘rsl_rx_ipac_XXcx’:
rsl.c:2147:39: error: ‘%s’ directive output may be truncated writing up to 255 bytes into a region of size 28 [-Werror=format-truncation=]
2147 | snprintf(cname, sizeof(cname), "bts@%s", ipstr);
rsl.c:2147:3: note: ‘snprintf’ output between 5 and 260 bytes into a destination of size 32
2147 | snprintf(cname, sizeof(cname), "bts@%s", ipstr);
Those commands are now handled by libosmovty itself.
The variable ta256b_sum is int32_t and num_ul_meas_actual is unsigned
int. When ta256b_sum is negative the division produces the wrong result.
This is beacuse the division is performed unsigned as the usual
arithmetic conversions promote to unsigned where both both operands are
the same width.
Lets fix this by casting num_ul_meas_actual to signed.
(Note that in the same function there are various other averages
computed in the same pattern, but they have unsigned operands and so are
When a bad SACCH frame is received the processing of the frame is ended
early and lchan_ms_pwr_ctrl() is not called. This means that the power
control loop does not get informed about a situation where the signal
level is very weak and increasing the ms power would make sense. In
order to ensure that the power control keeps working on lost SACCH
frames, lets call lchan_ms_pwr_ctrl() with the current RSSI and the
requested (BSC) power setting.
osmo-bts currently does not generate a measurement report in case the
SACCH of the related traffic channel is lost. This is a problem because
the moment when reception gets bad measurmenet reporting is crucial to
carry out handover decisions effectively.
The presence of a SACCH block controls the conclusion of the measurement
interval and the sending of the RSL measurement report. The latter one
not only requires a measurmenet indication, it also requires a fully
intact SACCH block.
Lets use the NOPE / IDLE indications from V1 of the TRXD protocol to
ensure a SACCH block is always reported up to l1sap.c. In cases where
the SACCH is bad, trigger the sending of the RSL measurement report
manually without attaching the measurmenet data from the MS (which we do
not have in this case)

osmo-bts-trx used to have its own (low-level) MS Power Control loop,
but recently it has been ripped out. Since , the process fails to
start if the configuration file still contains 'ms-power-control dsp'.
Let's be more tolerant: override 'dsp' by 'osmo' and print a warning.
Rename some variables so that:
* Variables containing power control levels end up with "_lvl".
* Variables containing power levels end up with _dbm.
* Move old current_dbm var to be ms_dbm, to match its power control
level counterpart ms_power_lvl, and add current_dbm to match its
Now that variables are more clear, it also becomes clear that old "diff >
0" condition, apart from difficult, was currently wrong, since in order
to print the raise/low verb we want to compare between old and new
values, not between received and new values. Let's fix that in this same
Simplify when the fixed field is set in rsl_rx_chan_activ.
Comment talks about enabling autonoumous control loop, but it is
actually describing it when disabling it, which is confusing.
When logging about filtering access bursts, let's indicate if this is
on a CCCH, PDCH or handover related.
This way it's much easier to introspect the library internal
talloc allocations from the VTY interface.
Let's drop it instead of having code duplication from common code in a
lower layer, and maintain only the one in l1sap for all BTS models.
As a result, osmo-bts-trx loses feature BTS_FEAT_MS_PWR_CTRL_DSP and
will only be able to use "ms-power-control osmo" in VTY, which will be
enabled by default (meaning: change of behavior, now MS Power Control is
enabled by default in osmo-bts-trx and can only by disabled by BSC).
Old bts-trx specific VTY command "(no) osmotrx ms-power-loop" is marked
as deprecated but still working for more usual case (1 TRX configured)
to avoid breaking backward compatibility.
TA low level loop is still kept in loops.c and will be moved to l1sap at
some point too.

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.

It's not a good idea to request big changes in MS Power based on
sporadic bad signal received, let's instead change announced MS power
levels more smoothly to avoid possible big signal strength fluctations,
similar to what is already done in osmo-bts-trx specific loop (loops.c).
Use instead the received MS Power currently in use by the MS matching
the measured signal. This way there's no need to wait for the MS to
reach the announced MS power level or add checks in case the MS doesn't
support that specific power level. Furthermore, more fine grained
announced power level value can be obtained faster due to more input
iterations not being dropped while waiting.
osmo-bts-trx specific algo was not following this approach and using
announced MS power instead because it's wowrking at a lower level and
henche was not using the transmitted MS Power level value by the MS as
input for the calculation.
The "if (diff < 2 && diff > -2))" condition is dropped since equal
signal strength may still result in a different MS power level announced
(the one currently used by the MS during tx of last SACCH block).
There is theoretical risk that when calculating the BER that a division
by zero occurrs. Lets add a check to avoid n_errors / n_bits_total when
n_bits_total is zero.
A NOPE.ind indicates absence of an Uplink burst, thus it does not
carry a burst. Let's init the burst length to avoid uninitialized
memory access in the scheduler code.
Each logical channel can now optionally have an additional handler,
that will be called when a NOPE / IDLE indication is received from
the transceiver. The aim of that handler is to keep the logical
channel state updated in case if one or more Uplink bursts are lost.
It indicates whether BTS model supports managing an MS Power Control
Loop over HW/DSP instead of using the software based osmocom algorithm
present in osmo-bts.
osmo-bts-trx own loop implementation is considered to be a "DSP/HW" one
since it acts on lower layers and interferes with osmocom algorithm
since it controls the same end variable "lchan->ms_power_ctrl.current",
this way we make sure both aren't enabled at the same time.
Old behavior in kept: if common upper-layer algo is not enabled
explicitly in VTY (ms-power-control osmo) and bts-trx specific lower
layer algo is neither enabled (osmotrx ms-power-loop <xyz>), then no
power control is done at all.
Several improvements have been made lately to MS Power Control loop from
osmo-bts-trx in loops.c. Let's port these to the common algorithm.
