hostapd: Add Automatic Channel Selection (ACS) support
This adds ACS support to hostapd. Currently only survey-based algorithm is available. To use ACS you need to enable CONFIG_ACS=y in .config and use channel=0 (or channel=acs_survey) in hostapd.conf. For more details see wiki page [1] or comments in src/ap/acs.c. [1]: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/acs Signed-hostap: Michal Kazior <michal.kazior@tieto.com>

+# Automatic Channel Selection
+# This will allow hostapd to pick the channel automatically when channel is set
+# to "acs_survey" or "0". Eventually, other ACS algorithms can be added in
+# similar way.
+#
+# Automatic selection is currently only done through initialization, later on
+# we hope to do background checks to keep us moving to more ideal channels as
+# time goes by. ACS is currently only supported through the nl80211 driver and
+# your driver must have survey dump capability that is filled by the driver
+# during scanning.
+#
+# You can customize the ACS survey algorithm with the hostapd.conf variable
+# acs_num_scans.
+#
+# Supported ACS drivers:
+# * ath9k
+# * ath5k
+# * ath10k
