Add a firmware vs software GEM station crosscheck

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/firmware-station-check into main


This MR implements a simple change to avoid the problem described in the following Elog. The idea is to check whether or not the online software (gemhardware) has been built for the same GEM station as the firmware (0xBEFE). While not 100% bullet-proof, it should catch most of the occurrences.
