offer a dynamic TCH/H_PDCH pchan type
We now have these dynamic pchan types:
- TCH/F_PDCH (PDCH ACT style)
- TCH/F_TCH/H_PDCH (CHAN ACT style)
It would be fairly trivial to add a dedicated TCH/H_PDCH type,
i.e. a TCH/F_TCH/H_PDCH (CHAN ACT style) that has TCH/F disabled.
Downsides: it adds a bit of code bloat (more switch cases...).
Benefits: Having this pchan type prevents phones from hogging a whole
TCH/F, theoretically doubling the capacity.

If we configure a pchan of TCH/F_TCH/H_PDCH and a codec-list of only half-rate codecs, we also obtain dynamic TS that will never be used for TCH/F.
Furthermore, if the codec-list features FR after the HR codecs, then we prefer to use TCH/H, but if unavailable use TCH/F, which is the same as above with a fallback to TCH/F.
Bottom line: this feature idea is not going to be implemented because the codec-list provides all useful flexibility already.
