Hello holger,
	          Thanks for your comments.
We see that in latest osmo-bts,  PCU_IF_VERSION is defined as 0x06 whereas in latest osmo-pcu, it is defined as 0x05.  Let us know the value  to be taken for 11 bit RACH support.

Regards
Bhargava Abhyankar

could you start by sending a patch for both osmo-bts and osmo-pcu to modify the pcuif_proto.h with the new protocol and the version number increase and osmo-bts to set it as GPRS_8_BIT_RACH (to match current behavior if that makes sense)?

please have a look at the Linux Kernel CodingStyle guidelines about necessary spaces between the if keyword and the opening parenthesis.

In terms of style, could you move the code that select the 'sb' into a separate (static inline) helper function. Not that we do it right now but in general this allows us to unit test such things more easily.

Do you think a log message is necessary here? Also in terms of TODO, maybe describe what someone in the future should put there?


kind regards
