Port usability without license on ASR920 changed between software versions.

We do not have the 12x10 models, but we have the 12x1+2x10 models, and
they changed from "you can only use ports /1../6" to "you can use any
port, but only 6 in total" at some point int the past....

That said, if you have the same software version on the RMA'ed device,
it definitely should behave the same.

*That* said, the ASR920 BU is full of interesting *ahem* surprises.
