This series of patches looks causes failure of auto test
By bisecting, the patch 03/15 "mesh: relocate RSN init function"
could cause this.

And gcc 7.3.0 outputs this warning.

mesh.c: In function ‘wpas_mesh_complete_cb’:
mesh.c:412:7: warning: implicit declaration of function 
‘hostapd_set_freq_params’; did you mean ‘hostapd_set_security_params’? 
    if (hostapd_set_freq_params(&params->freq,
