MSC_ConnectionHandler: fix race in f_create_chan_and_exp()

During f_create_chan_and_exp() (part of f_establish_fully()), announce
the BSSAP L3 expectation before activating the lchan.

In RSL_Emulation f_chan_est(), we go through Chan Request, Channel Act
and Immediate Assignment followed by EST IND. Right after that, osmo-bsc
sends a Complete Layer 3 on BSSAP. But in f_create_chan_and_exp(), we
only create the expectation of the BSSAP right after the call to
f_chan_est(), i.e. only after sending the EST IND. So far it was always
juuust in time to work, but when I added a little check to the end of
f_chan_est(), or alternatively an f_sleep(0.2), then BSC tests always
fail with:

Test case TC_reassignment_fr finished. Verdict: fail reason: Couldn't find Expect for incoming connection { [...] pdu := { bssmap := { completeLayer3Information... }

With the BSSAP expectation done first, this error is avoided.
