Description

The constant CELL_IDENT_LAI_AND_LAC is part of an enum defined in include/osmocom/gsm/protocol/gsm_08_08.h.
"LAI and LAC" is a misnomer.

Quoting Neels in http://lists.osmocom.org/pipermail/openbsc/2018-March/011862.html:

A "LAI" is by definition a PLMN (MCC+MNC) plus a LAC.
So saying "LAI and LAC" is like saying "My family and my brother".

I think we should rename it and have a backwards compat:
  #define CELL_IDENT_LAI_AND_LAC CELL_IDENT_LAI

Added by Stefan Sperling almost 3 years ago

rename CELL_IDENT_LAI_AND_LAC to CELL_IDENT_LAI

The name "LAI AND LAC" makes no sense because a LAC
is part of a LAI. Keep the old name available for
API backwards compatibility.
