select_network with freq list doesn't work

select_network with freq list doesn't work, because in wpa_supplicant_ctrl_iface_select_network a manual scan is selected and manual_scan_freqs are set:

                pos = os_strstr(cmd, " freq=");
                if (pos) {
                                int *freqs = freq_range_to_channel_list(wpa_s, pos + 6);
                                if (freqs) {
                                                wpa_s->scan_req = MANUAL_SCAN_REQ;
                                                wpa_s->manual_scan_freqs = freqs;

then wpa_supplicant_select_network(wpa_s, ssid) is called where scan type is modified to normal:

wpa_s->scan_req = NORMAL_SCAN_REQ;

and wpa_supplicant_scan doesn't use
because it uses them only in case of MANUAL_SCAN_REQ.

In wpa_supplicant_ctrl_iface_select_network normal scan with next_scan_freqs also can't be used, because next_scan_freqs would be reset in wpa_supplicant_select_network.
Please, suggest, a solution.
