some comments regarding your issues.txt:

as far as I know, it has to change on every retransmission. Dieter is
probably the person who knows all RACH aspects in detail, maybe he can
comment on this.
> must be expanded: struct osmocom_ms:
no problem here, expand it how you see fit. I just generally prefer
caller-allocated structures to callee-allocated ones, and I'd like to
use static allocation whenever possible. So if there's only one 'struct
rrlayer' per ms, then we should simply include 'struct rrlayer' as
sub-structure of 'struct osmocom_ms', rather than having two structures
and pointers between them.

I don't understand, can you please explain this further?

I think we simply add some new / non-standard primitives, as it does not
have any notion of RACH bursts.
It might also be possible to encode it as UNIT DATA REQUEST for channel
(chan_nr) RACH (CCCH uplink), but then we still cannot specify details
like at which frame number, etc. From what I can see, your
RSL_MT_RAND_ACC_REQ approach looks fine to me. As a minor improvement
we could call it RSLms_MT_RAND_ACC_REQ to indicate that it is our custom
RSLms message and nothing specified in the original RSLms spec.
