Could you add TS boundaries to your ascii art? I still didn't read/
understand the constraints with TrX.

It is my understanding of the current code. In case we start with a
DL TBF. We will need to create an immediate assignment and send it
through the PCH. On the immediate assignment we can only announce
one TS/PDCH. (We could follow-up with another control command to
inform the phone about the other dl assignments it has).

PS: My scheduling "fair-ness" patches create another issue. The code
should make sure that a DL_ASSIGNMENT is scheduled _before_ the final
uplink ack/nack. Even if it requires a bit more memory I think it
would make sense if we have a small CTRL command queue inside the TBF.
