FACCH/H sometimes not received by BTS with osmocomBB+motorolaCXX
While working on support to run TTCN3 BTS_Tests with real HW (motorola phone + osmo-bts-trx + osmo-trx + B200) (#3155), it was spotted that several tests (a51 and a52 for f_TC_encr_cmd and f_TC_chan_act_encr) fail while trying to send some UNIT DATA (MS->BTS) using a configured FACCH/H channel. Test fails most of the time but not always.
Those tests actually run same procedures several times but with a different set of channel configs (f_testmatrix_each_chan). It first runs using TCH/H (FACCH/F) and that one is successful, but then during second round, where it uses TCH/H (FACCH/H) it fails most of the times.
Same test running in virtual TTCN3 setup with TRXCON seems to be passing always fine.

For now I'll disable FACCH/H related testing when using real HW (no trxcon):
