Could you please describe the use case for this? set_noa() is really a
testing only functionality in wpa_supplicant and I would expect real
life NoA management to be handled by the driver. For common use cases of
set_noa(), I would expect the interval to be set automatically based on
the Beacon interval. Are you thinking of using this somehow to hardcode
some test cases where the absence periods cross beacon intervals? Is
millisecond resolution suitable for that purpose?
