Description

OsmoMSC currently identifies itself simply as "MSC" over the IPA/GSUP link to OsmoHLR.

This is wrong as it results in all OsmoMSCs (in a multi-MSC network) to register using the same identity, which in turn will render the HLR unable to store which MSC is actually serving the subscriber, and/or to route mesages accordingly.

It appears the change to "MSC" was made in Change-Id: I0a60681ab4a4d73e26fe8f0637447db4b6fe6eb2 from "SGSN-00-00-00-00-00-00" before. Both the old and the new name are wrong though, as they're not unique.

The correct behavior AFAICT is "MSC-" prefix with whatever unque identifier behind. We could make that suffix configurable in the VTY, if there's no other way to derive any other locally unique identifier. MAC adresses work fine for BTSs, but not for MSCs: There might be any number of OsmoMSCs running on the same physical / virtual machine with only one MAC address...

Note: The identifier must stay unique even across re-starts of the MSC.
