Does this need to be user configurable parameter? Wouldn't it be simpler
to just enable HT mode by default if the driver supports it and the
regulatory domain allows such use? As far as HT40 is concerned, I would
not enable it by default at least on 2.4 GHz band. It could reasonable
to have a configuration item for it in 5 GHz, but that shouldn't require
selection between HT40+ and HT40- since that can be determined from how
the channels have been defined.
