Setting the side button is not yet possible with CHIRP. Looking at the GA-2S implementation the coresponding data seem already been extracted (Browser -> settings2 -> sidekeyfunction). However within the CHIRP-settingsmenue for GA-2S that option is not displayed and not changeable.

The following patch will enable the side key drop down menu. I tested it on my recently acquired GA-2S units and it works, however the option for "Transmit Power" does nothing so I've changed that to "unused"

As I downloaded a Baofeng 888 I realized the global variable is overwritten unconditionally. So now I'm only updating it if the GA-2S get_settings() function is called.
