What is this based on? I wrote that ap_scan functionality is not
supported in managed mode, not passive scanning in general.. Firmware
takes care of scanning in managed mode. I don't remember whether there
was separate options for active vs. passive scanning, but then again, I
don't really know what functionality you were looking for.
