Yes, my mistake, I was talking about wpa_s->config->ssid.

Afaik, nothing prevents you from using wpa_s->config->ssid for you own
purpose (back-upping it, providing you own etc...).
But since it's not that clean, I will add a struct
wpa_driver_scan_params *autoscan_params in wpa_s that you could set in
In req_scan/req_sched_scan function: if that pointer is set it would
directly use it.
This solution is a bit more intrusive, but way much less than managing
everything in the module as you proposed,
and solves you issue fully since you can tweak completely the scan
I will prepare a new patch set.
