l1sap: Correctly count RACH slots in calc_exprd_rach_frames()

We used a bogus multiplication factor of four when computing the number
of expired RACH slots.  While there are four RACH slots per block (i.e.
4 times more RACH received than normal MAC blocks), that multiplier
doesn't apply here:  We are calling this function per *frame* and not
per *block*.  So the maximum number of RACH slots per *frame* is (in
most suual cases with a single CCCH) at maximum 1. Only some obscure
configurations with multiple CCCHs in a single cell would render higher
values.  In any case, *blocks* never even enter this equation.

This wrong multiplier resulted in rather weird RACH load reports to the
