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 (f99e2722c1203456fdc5e798098ee433e876b403)
             N -- N -- N (3b017c73e40769f15ee76dfbb55e63b31c143958)

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.

    enable ctrl bind config for various programs
    Add ctrl_vty_init() calls and feed the ctrl_vty_get_bind_addr() return value to
    ctrl_interface_setup() in the following programs:
    For osmo-sgsn, move the control interface setup invocation below the config
    parsing, so that the ctrl_vty_get_bind_addr() can return the configured

    osmo-nitb: be strict about cmdline args
    Abort upon unknown options and missing option arguments. This came to my
    attention while rewiring the -m and -M options: passing -M without argument
    would launch nitb with wrong configuration. So, rather exit immediately.
    If there are legacy options that should be ignored, they deserve an own 'case:'
    in the option switch. There are none that I'm aware of though.

    osmo-nitb: cosmetic: rename to rf_ctrl_path, following mncc_sock_path
    Strictly speaking, the unix domain socket location is not a name but a path.
    The MNCC socket is called path, so it is confusing to call the ctrl socket
    a 'name'.

    osmo-nitb: add -M to pass specific MNCC socket path
    The old -m option without argument is still available and marked deprecated,
    to not make users' lives more difficult than necessary.

    enable telnet VTY bind address config for various programs
    Following the 'line vty'/'bind A.B.C.D' command added in libosmocore, use the
    configured address to set the telnet bind for the VTY line. It is now possible
    to publish the VTY on a specific local interface (including aka "any").
    Implement in all of:
    In some of these main programs, move the telnet initialization below the
    configuration parsing.
    Historically, this was not a good idea for programs using bsc_init.c (aka
    bsc_bootstrap_network()), since they expected a gsm_network struct pointer in
    ((struct telnet_connection*)vty->priv)->priv, so that telnet had to be either
    initialized or replaced by a dummy struct. In the meantime, the gsm_network
    struct is not actually looked up in a priv pointer but in the static bsc_vty.c
    scope (bsc_gsmnet), so this limitation is mere legacy (even though said legacy
    is still there in an "#if 0" chunk).
    In the other binaries I have briefly looked at the init sequence dependencies
    and found no reason to initialize telnet above the config file parsing. In any
    case, I have tested every single one of abovementioned binaries to verify that
    they still parse the example config successfully and launch, allowing VTY
    connections on the configured address(es). I hope this suffices.
    In all of the above, log VTY address and port. LOGL_INFO is disabled by default
    in some of the logging scopes, and since it is a single log message right at
    program launch, I decided for the slightly more aggressive LOGL_NOTICE.
