oc2g: l1if: delay trx initialization to avoid race condition

On links with high latency it can happen that RADIO CARRIER OPSTART is
carried out to early, even before SET BTS ATTRIBUTES is carried out.
This means that important parameters for the initalization are not yet
set and the TRX initalization failed. Lets delay the TRX initalization a
bit in order to be sure that all BTS attributes are set before the
initalization is carried out.
