[PATCH 1/3] wpa_supplicant: Don't optimize scan frequencies if selected network has changed

From: Avraham Stern <avraham.stern at intel.com>

When disconnecting from a BSS, the next scan is optimized to scan only
the channels used by the connected ESS. But when disconnecting because
a new network was selected, this optimization is wrong because
wpa_supplicant is now trying to connect to another ESS.
Fix this by not optimizing the scan frequencies in case the selected
network has changed.
