I guess I must have tried that at first but skipped it because openbsc
didn't want to build in the `jolly/testing` branch. However for the
little bits open-bts-trx depends on in the openbsc code, this works
fine (oops!).

So really the current path to compile the osmo-bts-trx jolly/trx branch
remains to use the openbsc jolly/testing branch (as indicated on the
wiki). I'll update my notes.

As I said, the jolly/testing branch of openbsc doesn't build fully.
(Although I guess this still leaves you with an osmo-nitb binary!)
The `master` branch of openbsc builds properly, that's why I got stuck
with that in my mind ("it builds so it's the one to use!").

I'm not sure what the feature differences and stability are, though.
osmo-nitb (master branch) crashes when I try to place mobile-to-mobile
calls, I need to experiment with the different versions.
