[PATCHv5 0/2] ath10k spectral scan support

This is the fifth "PATCH" patchset iteration for the ath10k spectral
scan feature. It includes a small change compared to Kalles PATCHv4
series: the parameter initialization has been moved to
ath10k_spectral_start() so that the parameters also get reset when the
firmware crashes.

To view the samples, please have a look at the fft_eval tool [1] which
now supports both ath9k and ath10k formats.

The count issue is still open: Even when a count is specified, the
hardware seems to send endless samples. It seems to work most of the
time in VHT80 mode though, but in HT20 and HT40 the count value seems
to be ignored. To reproduce this, start hostapd with the desired
channel width and do:

echo 8 > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath10k/spectral_count
echo manual > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath10k/spectral_scan_ctl
echo trigger > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath10k/spectral_scan_ctl
cat /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath10k/spectral_scan0 >> /tmp/fft.dump

Repeating the last line and checking the filesize will easily show
whether ath10k still sends samples or not. We would expect 8 samples in
this configuration.

Please see the patches for more information on the changes.
