GPS-Yaw Can Not Fallback To Compass (Copter-4.1.5 Stable Release)

Hello, i am testing Copter-4.1.5 Stable Release Firmware.

I use Novatel RTK OEM718D for GPS, this RTK board use two gps antenna,and can output heading data. For test this RTK, i modify <libraries/AP_GPS/AP_GPS_NOVA.cpp>, make it can handle heading data. The code is push to my github, and th PR is here:

Here is my param set:
GPS_TYPE 15 // for Novatel RTK
EK3_SRC1_YAW 3 // GPS with Compass Fallback

My fcs can get gps-3dfix(no rtk base), and the gps-heading data is valid, and fcs can use gps-heading perfectly. But when i cover one of gps antana(make gps-heading data invalid), and fcs seems like failed fallback to compass.

Here is my Log file.2022-04-07 15-50-50.bin
You can see when GPS-Yaw is unavailable, the yaw angle keep grow up, and it failed track the compass. Any hints will help, thanks.

Fist off, make a github pull-request with your software changes.
