Make the OptoHybrid configuration stricter

Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/stricter-optohybrid-configuration into main


This MR is at first a follow-up on !309 which proved to be useful in the initialization of the trigger links (but less in the programming of the GE1/1 OptoHybrid FPGA). In more detail, the following changes are implemented:

  1. Ensure that the local readout output file can be open (old commit written during QC8 S-curves debugging)
  2. Enhance the GE1/1 trigger links reset (mainly wait longer for errors to build up; mostly taken from !309)
  3. Promote the PROM-less errors to genuine errors instead of warnings (this is a back-end issue, not a front-end instability against which the DAQ must be robust)
