Subject: No binary output module in ETMY 

1) The FM1 files in the XXSEN modules should switch the analog shadow sensor whitening. I found today that, at least on ETMY and ETMX, they do nothing. This needs to be fixed before we can use the suspensions.

Joe discovered today that ETMY in fact has no binary output module at all, so there is actually no digital control of the whitening filters at ETMY.

We suspect that the ETMY binary output module was maybe harvested to put in the LSC rack, but we're not sure.

We found a spare binary output adapter pcb, which I will try to assemble into a module to install in ETMY.

This does not explain what's going on with ETMX, though.  ETMX has a binary output module, that appears to be properly hooked up.  I'll try to debug what's going on there as well.

In the mean time, I've removed the ETMX binary output module to use as a reference for putting together another identical module for ETMY.
