Technically, it's not. Multi-channel support will *not* imply that you
are able to put an AP and a client interface on two different channels -
the AP wouldn't work correctly due to being absent when the client
interface is being handled.

I would recommend against a driver allowing such use case since there's
no way to tell the user that it's a stupid idea.
