If you download from a stock VX-8R radio using the Yaesu/VX-8 radio selection, the VX8DRadio class functions are executed instead of the VX8Radio functions. The VX8DRadio functions attempt
to generate a Settings tab for the VX-8R which causes errors due to the fact that the memory layout for the APRS settings in the vx8.py driver is for VX-8DR and VX-8GE only.

[vx8] Fix issue with VX-8R download from radio. Fixes #4883
This patch ensures that the functions from the correct radio class are called
when downloading from the radio. This is achieved by defining distinct MODELs
for the VX-8R, VX-8DR, and VX-8GE and deleting their VARIANTs. This patch is
also accompanied (out-of-band) with test image files for each of the radios.
