the code and tool is already in svn, if you build openbsc it will now build a
program called 'bs11-config'.

however, due to the fact that I'm still on travels in Taiwan, I currently
don't have access to any system to test the code.

So I would assume that the tool is tested and known-to-be-working towards
the first week of February.

I will also write some documentation for the tool and put it in the wiki.

So far, the source code of the last pages of abis_nm.c as well as the
bs11_config.c file should enable you to understand what kind of things it does.
