Transceiver: use proper factor for amplitude scaling
In Transceiver::addRadioVector() we scale the I/Q samples by scaling the output voltage of the DAC. A relative factor/divisor/ration in the voltage domain cannot be used 1:1 in the power domain. There exist two similar formulas: a) X_dB = 10 * log10(X_lin / X_ref) b) Y_db = 20 * log10(Y_lin / Y_ref) both of them are correct, and according to [1]: a) If you convert a quantity X that relates to power or energy, => the factor is 10. b) If you convert a quantity Y that relates to amplitude, => the factor is 20. Therefore we should be using 20 instead of 10. This change makes osmo-trx apply per-lchan attenuation values correctly. Otherwise it would double the values indicated in TRXD messages.
