    bts: "Repair" broken channels if we receive the release ack
    We had issues with odd behavior on the nanoBTS which lead
    to the introduction of the "broken" state. On busy multi
    BTS cells (e.g. rhizomatica) with wifi backhaul the timeout
    we set to wait for a RF Channe Release ACK is sometimes too
    little and channels are marked broken that look to be okay
    (besides the still to be determined delay).
    In case of a sysmoBTS we now know that we can change the
    state of a broken channel back to normal in case we do
    receive the right response.
    Manually verified using the Smalltalk BTS code
    PackageLoader fileInPackage: 'FakeBTS'
    bts := FakeBTS.BTS new.
    bts btsId: '1903/0/0'.
    bts connect: 'localhost'.
    bts waitForBTSReady.
    test := FakeBTS.OpenBSCTest new.
    test bts: bts.
    test requireAnyChannel
    ... wait for NITB output
    <0004> abis_rsl.c:223 (bts=0,trx=0,ts=0,ss=0) Timeout during deactivation! Marked as broken.
    ... process pending messages
    stdin next
    <0004> abis_rsl.c:735 (bts=0,trx=0,ts=0,ss=0) CHAN REL ACK for broken channel. Releasing it.
    So the channel went from broken to unallocated.
