Fix race condition in attribute reporting

Previously it could be possible that the attribute request comes from
BSC before the TRX is properly initialized which would lead to SIGABRT
caused by OSMO_ASSERT() in PHY instantiation. Workaround this by
explicitly checking for TRX availability before handling TRX-specific

This only happens with osmo-bts-trx and is hard to reproduce. Ideal fix
would be to defer attribute response until we have TRX connected but
that would make corresponding code more complex because we'll need to
save the attribute request and properly hook response routine into TRX
connection handler. Alternatively we can postpone osmo-bts-trx
connection to BSC until TRX is available: it's not very useful without
it anyway.
