cfg80211: Fix parsed country IE info for 5 GHz
Luis R. Rodriguez [Thu, 8 Jan 2009 01:43:37 +0000 (17:43 -0800)]
The country IE number of channels on 5 GHz specifies the number
of 5 GHz channels, not the number of sequential channel numbers.
For example, if in a country IEs if the first channel given is 36
and the number of channels passed is 4 then the individual channel
numbers defined for the 5 GHz PHY by these parameters

are: 36, 40, 44, 48
not: 36, 37, 38, 39
