osmo-bts: rach_ind.ra size

I just came across this compiler warning:

l1sap.c: In function 'gsmtap_ph_rach':
l1sap.c:291:8: warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type [enabled by default]
  *data = &l1sap->u.rach_ind.ra;

It's a
	uint16_t ra
and used like this in common/l1sap.c:

	static int gsmtap_ph_rach(struct osmo_phsap_prim *l1sap, uint8_t *chan_type,
		uint8_t *tn, uint8_t *ss, uint32_t *fn, uint8_t **data, int *len)
		*data = &l1sap->u.rach_ind.ra;
		*len = 1;

A cast like this would fix the compiler warning and make sense if data is
interpreted to point at a 16 bit data block, probably in host byte order

		*data = (uint8_t*)&l1sap->u.rach_ind.ra;
		*len = 1;

But *len = 1 means that **data is an 8bit value?
This is sent to gsmtap.

Is *len = 1 something we should fix?
