Ok.  Since the hostap_common.h file in most cases specifies if certain
RIDs are available only in AP firmware (and this is not marked
likewise), I was not sure if this was one of those RIDs.

Can't get access to those docs :).  My curiosity towards these RIDs is
because they are not used in HostAP other than just for setting or
getting the RIDS, maybe some new feature could be explored using
