[PATCH 2/3] wpa_supplicant: Support minimum interval between scan attempts.

From: Ben Greear <greearb at candelatech.com>

When running lots of vifs, they can all end up wanting to
scan right after the other.  This leaves too little time for
useful work to happen.  Allow users to configure a minimum
timer interval (in seconds) between scans.  Default is zero,
which is current behaviour.
