To fix the WFS loops, went through the following steps

 We checked whitening and dewhitening situations in all the suspensions, and fixed them for ETMY.

We checked the polarity of suspension damping loops if they follow the conventions we agreed in 40m/16898.

PRM/SRM OSEM input calibration

- I realized I had not yet updated
the input OSEM cts2um calibration. For PRM and SRM, I changed each cts2um filter gain from 0.36 ---> 0.0417 (factor
of 8.64).

To further homogenize the suspensions, we did the following changes.

 - Changed +/- 13 in SDCOIL_GAIN of SR2,LO1,LO2,AS1,AS4 to +/-1 and increased SUSSIDE_GAIN accordingly

While aligning today I realized the cavAlign step sizes and step factors had not been updated after the upgrade.

Here are the new MEDM command arguments to launch cavAlign. Only factors not equal to 1
are listed. The updates made by me are in red

WFS Loop Debugging

- We turned on the WFS loops with very
small gain (0.01) to see how the error signals behave. There is an existing template to look at the error signals in ndscope (users->Templates->ndscope->IOO->WFS->WFS-overview.yml).
