NR: fix time keeping in RLC for gNB

RLC has timers. We need to keep track of time. We chose to not use
realtime but 'processing time'. That is we send a tick to RLC for every
subframe when it is processed by the softmodem. Before this commit we
used to increase time in the function mac_rlc_status_ind which is called
for every subframe in the eNB, but not in the gNB (at least not in the
current gNB). So we need another way to keep track of time.

The function gNB_dlsch_ulsch_scheduler is called for every slot. It seems
to be the perfect candidate to send a tick to RLC for every subframe. We
take care of subcarrier spacing to send every subframe (one subframe is
always 1ms), not every slot (slot duration depends on subcarrier spacing).

It may not be the best solution. To be revised if needed.

Note: the UE has not been fixed. Some modification is needed for the UE
too, most probably.
