[RFC PATCH 0/1] Optionally instruct wpa_supplicant to do ACS

When asked to start an access point wpa_supplicant learned to offer ACS
(Automatic Channel Selection) with commits 96bc50868469 ("Handle survey event
properly in wpa_supplicant") and d99097177a31 ("wpa_supplicant: Enable Automatic
Channel Selection support for AP mode") that can be found in its current master

As NetworkManager and wpa_supplicant already cooperate with respect to APs
extending this cooperation to ACS seems natural. The following patch implements
this feature by the convention that having "channel=0" within a connection
means: please ask wpa_supplicant to automatically find a good channel for this
access point/ad hoc connection.

Please feel free to comment on it.

Thanks and regards
