Configure the front-end at configuration

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/configure-at-configure into main


This MR aims at configuring the front-end during configuration to avoid the unnecessary Start-Stop transitions to obtain the VFAT mask.

Additionally, implement per-component masking, both during configuration and running. A single GBT not locking should not prevent including the whole chamber in the run.

During the last THR_ARM_DAC scans at p5, a significant slow down was noticed. Trying to address the issue here by opening a second xHAL connection from the AMC manager to the back-end board.

See the commits for a complete description of the changes.

Note the incompatibilities:

  • The LMDB address table path has changed!
  • The last firmware builds must be used due to changes in the register names.
