problem with new hostapd driver

I'm trying to implement a new hostapd driver (against hostapd-0.5.10)
and am running into a problem with the get_hw_feature_data driver_op.

select_hw_model() is failing in the channel selection because
HOSTAPD_CHAN_W_SCAN is not set in chan->flag, but
hostapd_get_hw_features() clears this bit if the channel is above 11
(ie. 802.11a).

What does HOSTAPD_CHAN_W_SCAN mean to hostapd? Should it be getting
cleared for .11a channels? If so, is the check in select_hw_model()
correct? TIA.
