Introduce background radar/CAC detection through a dedicated off-channel
chain available on some hw (e.g. mt7915).
Background radar/CAC detection allows to avoid the CAC downtime
switching on a different channel during CAC detection on the selected
radar channel.

Changes since v1:
- drop applied patches
- rebase on top of hostapd main branch
- fix compiler warnings
- fix current_vht_oper_chwidth configuration in
- reset radar background chain if necessary in hostapd_dfs_nop_finished
- always set channel_type to DFS_ANY_CHANNEL for ETSI regdomain in
  hostpad_dfs_update_background_chain in order to comply with uniform

Lorenzo Bianconi (5):
  DFS: rely on channel_type in dfs_downgrade_bandwidth signature
  DFS: configure background radar/cac detection.
  DFS: introduce hostapd_dfs_request_channel_switch routine
  DFS: enable CSA for background radar detection
  DFS: switch to background radar channel if available
