Run pyflakes src/osmo_gsm_tester and then address the first
round of problems.
After bug described in OS#3456 and fixed in last commit, let's
categorize and place variables in its correct plac to avoid similar
issus. We leave under the class keyword (class scoped variables) the
attributes which are to be used as static class attributes. All other
ones are initialized during __init__(). This way w avoid scenarios in
which while using an object from an instance attribute we end up reading
a class scoped variable which is shared among all instances.
The num_trx attribute for a given BTS states the number of TRX to be
used by that BTS. If more than num_trx are configured in trx_list in the
cfg file, then only up to num_trx are taken into account. If a num_trx
value higher than max_trx is specified throuygh config file or at
runtime by the test, an exception is raised explaining the issue.
The num/max_trx attributes are overlayed along the config levels
(generic -> bsc_bts -> specific bts-type -> specific resource object).
This way we can specify a long list of trx+timeslot config in the
generic config (bsc_bts), and tune for each model and specific BTS which
is the desired default number of TRX, as well as the maximum supported

Move duplicated code into a method in the superclass.
Take the chance to identify and drop modules importing event_loop but
not using it.
A lot of code can be shared by all osmocom related BTS we currently use
(sysmo, octphy, trx). This commits moves all this easily shareable code
to an abstract class OsmoBts which all (osmocom) BTS use.
Some bits of code do not apply for osmo-bts-sysmo but it's still shared
by BTS running in the main unit (octphy, trx), for instance the pcu
socket handling. Those are put together in OsmoBtsMainUnit.
This way we have:
Also take the chance to categorize the different APIs in the new
abstract class based on their use and scope.
Some code changes while moving which were required:
- A new protected abstract API "create_pcu", which returns an object of
"pcu" interface. Subclasses implement this API returning either a
PcySysmo or a PcuOsmo object. This is needed to abstract the pcu()
getter into the base class.
- For BTS running in the main unit, pcu_sk_tmp_dir object is allocated
when first used (API pcu_socket_path()) instead of doing it in the
constructor. This is moved into OsmoBtsMainUnit
This is required to start osmo-pcu after osmo-bts is already setup and
activated. Otherwise osmo-pcu ends after connecting to socket with:
"pcu_l1_if.cpp:416 BTS not available"
Specific parts for this class:
- Runs osmo-bts-octphy binary, that requires CAP_NET_RAW capability
because it uses an AF_PACKET socket.
- As a consequence, it must use the previously added APIs to set the
capability and modify the RPATH of the binary before launching it. These
APIs require extra host setup and installed dependencies that will be
documented soon in osmo-gsm-tester manual.
- A num_trx() helper method is added because the binary requires that
- A allocate_phy_instances() is added to help build/fill the conf
dictionary to be used in the tmpl to be able to easily set up trx, phy
A config to use a osmo-bts-octphy at full power is used (4 trx) is added
in this commit to show how can it be configured. However our
current license only has support to use 1 TRX, and so next commit drops
most configurations to simplify the setup to use only 1 TRX.
We're not currently paying attention to the octphy in osmo-gsm-tester. So
instead of maintaining dead code, remove the bts_octphy.py; we can re-add when
the octphy is implemented properly.
My current distribution ships a newer libcrypto and libssl which are not
ABI compatible with the ones generated by Jenkins. I had to copy those
libraries locally and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be able to run binaries
compiled coming from the jenkins slave. Without this patch I am not
able to run it because it is overwriting the previous variable.
Clearly separate the kinds of BTS hardware the GSM tester knows ('type') from
the NITB's bts/type config item ('osmobsc_bts_type' -- not 'osmonitb_...' to
stay in tune with future developments: it is the libbsc that needs this).
For BTS hardware kinds, use the full name of the binary for osmo driven models:
osmo-bts-sysmo, osmo-bts-trx, osmo-bts-octphy.
