This either needs to get fixed in the driver or the we need to blacklist
the card for that operation.

Ok, unfortunately many cards don't return very good scan results when
they are in ad-hoc mode for some reason, we need to figure out what the
cause of that is.  Therefore I added code like above to set the mode to
managed for the duration of the scan.  I'd really like to figure out why
this behavior occurs, for example is it that the card can't listen for
beacons from APs when it also has to transmit its own beacons for Ad-Hoc
mode?  More investigation needed.
