This is an automated email from the git hooks/post-receive script. It was
generated because a ref change was pushed to the repository containing
the project "The OpenBSC GSM Base Station Controller (+MSC/HLR/SGSN)".

This update added new revisions after undoing existing revisions.  That is
to say, the old revision is not a strict subset of the new revision.  This
situation occurs when you --force push a change and generate a repository
containing something like this:

 * -- * -- B -- O -- O -- O (b9d5c9b7922965469a6304fa65bd96c9ce8a50eb)
             N -- N -- N (346d506d0b2eebe93ae06f9b432c5f38f9f683ee)

When this happens we assume that you've already had alert emails for all
of the O revisions, and so we here report only the revisions in the N
branch from the common base, B.

Those revisions listed above that are new to this repository have
not appeared on any other notification email; so we list those
revisions in full, below.

    gtphub: implement restart counter properly.
    Force passing a restart counter, by adding such arg to gtphub_start() (test
    suite is not affected by this).
    In gtphub_main.c, add -r,--restart-file <path> and next_restart_count() to
    maintain the counter file. While at it, tweak the cmdline help to unify the
    formatting (mostly commas and a missing line break).
    Send gtphub's own restart counter. So far, the sender's restart counter was
    copied through, which would break as soon as more than one GSN would talk to
    the same peer with differing restart counters.
    Also fix the in-mem restart counter data type (one octet, not two).

    gtphub: complain about excess cmdline args.

    gtphub: track tunnels explicitly.
    So far, gtphub worked perfectly by only tracking single TEIs ... for probably
    most uses. But a Ctrl plane tunnel may have expired despite a still active
    corresponding User plane tunnel. The User plane would continue to work
    indefinitely, but if any Ctrl messages followed after more than six hours of
    Ctrl silence, they would have been dropped due to an expired TEI mapping.
    We want to
    - combine expiry of a user TEI with its ctrl TEI. (done in this patch)
    - upon delete PDP context, remove both user and ctrl TEI mappings. (future)
    - when a peer indicates a restart counter bump, invalidate its tunnels.
    To facilitate these, track tunnels, complete with both SGSN's and GGSN's
    address, original and replaced TEIs, all for both user and ctrl plane, in a
    single struct. A single expiry entry handles the entire tunnel, instead of
    previously four separate expiries for each endpoint identifier.
    Add the concept of a "side", being either GGSN or SGSN, to index tunnel
    endpoint structs, and so on.
    Track the originating side in the gtp_packet_desc.
    Add header_tei_rx: set_tei() overwrites header_tei, but the originally received
    header TEI is still needed to match a Create PDP Context Response up with its
    Request (and for logging).
    Adjust the test suite to expect tunnel listing strings instead of TEI mappings,
    with a bonus of making it a lot easier to grok, and including the IP addresses.
    Add regression test for refreshing tunnel expiry upon use.
    Note: the current implementation is as slow as can possibly be, iterating all
    the tunnels all the time. Optimizations are kept for a future commit, on
    BTW, the sequence number mapping/unmapping structures remain unchanged.
