Do not scan the HYST DAC by default

Laurent Petre requested to merge bugfix/hyst-dac into main


This MR fixes a recently discovered error in the VFAT configuration. The HYST DAC must not be scanned but set depending on the THR_ARM_DAC.

  • Do not select the HYST by default
  • Set the CFG_HYST to twice the value of THR_ARM_DAC by default, re-organizing the configuration parameters by topic at the same time
  • Add support for xdata::Boolean in the ScanInfo bag, fixing a xDAQ bug...

How Has This Been Tested?
