It would be very nice if I had the opportunity to skip this check by setting some configuration parametes (for ex. skip_interfere_bss_check=1). Currently I solving this by modifying hw_features.c and adding oper40=1 just before check if (!oper40) but I guess that this is not correct and the hostapd anyway sometimes falling back in 150Mb more again.

Which channel(pri/sec) are you trying to use on your AP? Could you
please send scan results that show the neighboring BSSes that prevent
used of HT40?
