Improve the front-end configuration

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/improved-fe-configuration into main


This MR is a first attempt at improving the front-end configuration based on 3 levers:

  • Disable only a single VFAT upon configuration error instead of the whole OptoyHybrid (yay!)
  • Use the new configuration files produced by the analysis suite
  • Allow configuring the FPGA registers through a configuration file

More improvements around the configuration files are expected before being fully usable at p5.
