wpa_supplicant: Enable Automatic Channel Selection support for AP mode
Since hostapd supports ACS now, let's enable its support in wpa_supplicant as well when starting AP mode. Signed-off-by: Tomasz Bursztyka <tomasz.bursztyka@linux.intel.com> [u.oelmann@pengutronix.de: rebased series from hostap_2_1~944 to master] [u.oelmann@pengutronix.de: adjusted added text in defconfig] Signed-off-by: Ulrich Ölmann <u.oelmann@pengutronix.de>

+# Automatic Channel Selection
+# This will allow wpa_supplicant to pick the channel automatically when channel
+# is set to "0".
+# TODO: Extend parser to be able to parse "channel=acs_survey" as an alternative
+# to "channel=0". This would enable us to eventually add other ACS algorithms 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.
+# TODO: In analogy to hostapd be able to customize the ACS survey algorithm with
+# a newly to create wpa_supplicant.conf variable acs_num_scans.
+# Supported ACS drivers:
+# * ath9k
+# * ath5k
+# * ath10k
