mobile: config file in /etc/osmocom/osmocom.cfg

Hi all,

I would like to propose moving the config file into something like ~/.osmocom/
and not put it in a system wide directory.  The path in /etc/ is the only
part of OsmocomBB that requires root privileges, and I don't really think
that in a case of multiple users you would want to e.g. share stuff like
the IMSI / Ki anyway.

What do you think?
