There are connection failures in hidden SSID case when the device is with
default reg domain WW.
For WW reg domain most of the 5 GHz channels are passive. When device
listens to the beacon on that channel, the driver is updating its channel
flag but firmware is not aware of it and firmware is not sending probes
on that channels.
Due to this, we are seeing connection failures when the device is tries to
connect with hidden SSID AP.
Whenever the driver detects a channel flag change, send the updated channel
list command to the firmware.
