Adding these changes in hostapd.c and then removing, re-adding them in
dfs.c, and removing and replacing them yet again in the same patch
series looks a bit odd.. I understand that this is partly because of
different authors being involved and original authors not submitting
this updated version, but the commits in this format make this way too
complex to review and find any issues in changes to functionality.

In addition to that, there were large number of coding style issues that
made this series pretty inconvenient. The patches are too large for that
matter (e.g., with the 3/3 going beyond the limit of this mailing list
size requirements). Renaming of functions make the changes look more
complex than they really were.

I split the changes into smaller commits to make this somewhat more
manageable and also merged some of the add-move-and-move-again parts
into a single commit so that the total number of changes goes down.
This is still far from ideal, but I think we've wasted way too much time
on these as-is, so it is probably better to just commit these and move
on with fixes on top of a fixed baseline.

Since I needed to do significant amount of cleanup, could you please
confirm that the update set of commits are fine? The latest snapshot of
the relevant patches is here: http://w1.fi/p/dfs2/
