ACS seems not to select the best channel in 2.4GHz.

The case that was discussed here was specific to 2.4 GHz band, i.e., the
involved code path was already adding the adjacent channels only for
that band. I don't think regulatory requirements would change this on 5
GHz; there just aren't overlapping channels defined in a way that would
need to care too much about adjacent channels in this ACS algorithm.
