Hello Pau Espin Pedrol, Neels Hofmeyr, Harald Welte, osmith, Jenkins Builder, 

I'd like you to reexamine a change. Please visit

    https://gerrit.osmocom.org/14069

to look at the new patch set (#4).

Change subject: libmsc/msc_vty.c: refactor 'show subscr / conn / trans' commands

libmsc/msc_vty.c: refactor 'show subscr / conn / trans' commands

The current way of printing subscriber, connection, and transaction
info is ugly (sorry) and has several problems:

  - the terminal width should be large enough to fit quite long lines,
    otherwise the output is unreadable and looks misaligned;

  - some fields (such as subscriber name) can be larger than it's
    expected, so either they're getting truncated, or again, the
    output is misaligned and unreadable;

  - adding new info fields would require one to think about the
    alignment and would make the output even more cumbersome.

Here is an example output of 'show connection' command:

  _Subscriber_______________________________________ _LAC_ _RAN___________________ _MSC-A_state_________ _MSC-A_use_
  IMSI-123456789012345:MSISDN-12345:TMSI-0x12345678      1 GERAN-A-4294967295:A5-3 WAIT_CLASSMARK_UPDATE 2=cm_service,trans_cc
  IMSI-123456789012356:MSISDN-234567:TMSI-0x123ABC78 65535     UTRAN-Iu-4294967295         COMMUNICATING 2=cm_service,trans_sms
  IMSI-262073993158656:MSISDN-123456:TMSI-0x493026BA     1               GERAN-A-1 MSC_A_ST_COMMUNICATING 1=1 (silent_call)

Another 'show subscriber' command mixes the information about
subscriber, its connections and transactions without any alignment,
what also decreases the readability.

This change introduces a hierarchical approach, based on the old
'field per line' formatting. First of all, the VTY commands were
extended with optional flags:

  show connection [trans]
  show subscriber cache [(conn|trans|conn+trans)]
  show subscriber TYPE ID [(conn|trans|conn+trans)]

so it can be decided, whether to print child connections and/or
transaction, or not. For example:

  show connection trans

would print all connections and their child transactions with
hierarchical alignment:

  Connection #00:
    Subscriber: IMSI-262073993158656:MSISDN-123456:TMSI-0x76760B75
    RAN connection: GERAN-A-1
    RAN connection state: MSC_A_ST_COMMUNICATING
    LAC / cell ID: 1 / 0
    Use count total: 1
    Use count: 1 (silent_call)
    Transaction #00:
      Unique (global) identifier: 0x00000000
      GSM 04.07 identifier (MT): 0
      Type: silent-call

another example is:

  show subscriber cache conn+trans

which would print all known subscribers,
their active connections and transactions:

  Subscriber #00:
    MSISDN: 123456
    LAC / cell ID: 1 / 0
    RAN type: GERAN-A
    IMSI: 262073993158656
    TMSI: 76760B75
    ...
    Connection:
      RAN connection: GERAN-A-1
      RAN connection state: MSC_A_ST_COMMUNICATING
      ...
      Transaction #00:
        Unique (global) identifier: 0x00000000
	GSM 04.07 identifier (MT): 0
	Type: silent-call
      Transaction #01:
        Unique (global) identifier: 0x00000001
	GSM 04.07 identifier (MO): 0
	Type: SMS
      Transaction #02:
        Unique (global) identifier: 0x00000002
	GSM 04.07 identifier (MT): 0
	Type: SMS

Please note that we don't print redundant info in child nodes
(i.e. connection and transaction info), such as subscriber name
in connection info, nor connection name in transaction info - it
is clear from the hierarchical formatting.
