Thanks, applied both patches with some cleanup/fixes. The
hostapd_is_dfs_required() path ended up crashing hostapd with any driver
that does not use hw_features, including use of hostapd as a RADIUS
server.. This ended up breaking 75 hwsim test cases because of the
authentication server crash; checking that iface->current_mode is set
fixed that.
