OsmoGSMTester: tweak sysmobts: systemctl, ssh, limits, reboot
Simpler systemctl rule to disable stock services. Fix the limits config, which was not the right way for sysmoBTS. SSH access: apparently no need to create an ssh key at all, login is permitted right away. Add hint to reboot at the right time. Change-Id: I8e686383318ee2eece908a4e690e5061ade0cd02
