[ft4] driver restructure (#7615)

While implementing two more radios of the Yaesu FT-4 family (the FT-25, see #7543, and the FT-4V, see #7387), I found that with some moderate reorganization, implementation of new radios will become easier. The proposed reorganization implements one more interstitial layer of inheritance to support the sub families of FT-4 (containing the FT-4X and FT-4V) and FT-65 (containing FT-65 and FT-25). Also, some variable assignments have been moved from the individual radio classes to the SCU-35 base class and to the interstitial classes named above.

This change also adds the infrastructure for adding European or Asian models, and as such prepare for addressing a number of currently open issues (6.25kHz tune step issues on EU models, frequency limitations; see #6619, #6651, #6677, #6761, #6869). It will also make it easier for a few additional fixes for issues which were found during my work on this driver (#7601, #7603, #7605). I will submit these fixes in additional patches.

[ft4] Add Yaesu FT-25R (and infrastructure for Yaesu FT-25E). Fixes: #7543
This patch adds support for the Yaesu FT-25 to Chirp. The European version is commented out; we can activate as soon as we obtain an image (it can be downloaded using FT-25R as selected radio).

[ft4] Corrective patch for FT-25E
The patch adding FT-25 had an incomplete edit in the commented-out code for the E version. This patch rectifies that.

Got a radio, working on it. Analyzed FT-4 driver, with some luck it will be a quick thing.

  • % Done changed from 20 to 50

Built a cable, corrected some model specific parameters, can already download error-free.
It turned out that memory channels might be completely uninitialized on a new device (this model only?), so I had to shuffle a few things around to keep Chirp from complaining.

There are still plenty of things to polish. But we're getting there.

Can download and upload, radio works.
Still some issues with a failing Python test.

Seems all to work. Will test it some more.

  • % Done changed from 90 to 100

Radio works, all tests are passing. I will prepare a set of patches this weekend.
A build should be available soon.

Sorry, there's some delay; I need to restructure the base driver ( first. That's essentially complete, but that patch needs to be accepted first. See #7615.

Image of an FT-25E. If you have one, please send it to me!
The image can be downloaded using "FT-25R" as radio in Chirp. Once I have the image, I'll add the FT-25E to Chirp.
