P2P Channel list: Applying regulatory rules

P2P spec 1.5 tells that:

> The Channel List attribute shall indicate the channels that the P2P Device can support as Operating Channel of the P2P Group if it becomes P2P Group Owner.

So in p2p_buf_add_channel_list We should take in to account the
reg_class flags and accordingly should avoid NO_IR/RADAR/PASSIVE-SCAN
channels from the channel list? because we cannot start AP operation
in those channels.

How do we handle Auto-GO/non-Auto-GO, for regulatory rules. Spec is
not clear about this.

I am preparing a patch to remove those channels for now, later we can
extend to check for DFS availability also.

But want to confirm before spending too much time.
