There is something anologue to this which allows to know the HT and VHT capabilties? And also if wpa_supplicant was built using those option (CONFIG_IEEE80211N and CONFIG_IEEE80211AC)?.
It would be really useful on the upper layers in order to know if 80211n and 80211ac can be enabled when setting up an AP mode operation.
