Patch Set 5:

See my related comment on why not initialize the logging also with a 
translation of the command line argument

 > Furthermore, having both the parameters and the
 > VTY at the same time seems really messy to me.

That's what we had in osmocom projects like openbsc/osmo-nitb for a long time, 
and continue to have to some
extent.  Lots of things were command-line arguments in the past and have lateer 
been added to the VTY.

Unless it's a lot of effort to support both ways, I would prefer to have one 
release that supports both,
but will print related warnings during start-up if the legacy command line 
arguments are used, and then
remove it in the next release.  This gives people some time.  Also, it would 
open the possibility to
* start with command line arguments
* do "write file" to generate a config file from those old settings

Also, before we make any related release, we have to make sure all 
documentation is updated, from wiki to
user manuals, ...

 > It may make sense to make a release before 6618 (depend on
 > libosmocore), and then merge everything at once.

I guess that means reverting the change in master and applying all related 
patches to branch (via gerrit) first.
