Thanks! I would say these changes have to be merged with my patch, so it can 
be applied without breaking git bisect for the affected drivers.

The whole point of having the band argument is to avoid this. We now have 
overlapping channel numbers: channel 8 and 12 are defined in 5GHz as well as 
in 2.4GHz (that is for 20MHz channel width, there are more for 10 and 5MHz 
width, but we don't support that yet). The band has to come from the hardware 
or driver configuration.

Same here.

And here.

So the two problematic drivers are libertas and rt2x00. I'm Cc'ing the 
maintainers, and hope that they have better insight into how to fix this than 
we.
