FS#2269 - iwinfo_lib.c does not correlate it's list with kernel

The following issue occurs on all devices across all OpenWRT versions as it is partly a problem derived from the Linux Kernel.

It is explained in detail here: https://forum.openwrt.org/t/wifi-regulatory-country-database/35775

Prerequisites:

1) You need to have set up a working Wireless access point.
2) The set country has to not be one of the ones patched out here: https://pastebin.com/M2qTQFT5

Steps to reproduce:

1) Type ‘iw reg get’ in the terminal. This will give you a list of all available channels in the regulatory zone (country).
2) Change country to one of the patched out ones: https://pastebin.com/M2qTQFT5 (Eg. Angola, Antarctica)
3) [opt - Disregard this step if you used the WebUI] Type ‘/etc/init.d/network restart’ 4) Type ‘iw reg get’ in the terminal. You will notice that it has not changed.

Problem:

You can, unknown to you, set up a channel which is prohibited in your country. This is very hard to *check* because there is no way to pre-query whether you can set such a country or not.

More detailed explanation and argumentation can be found here: https://forum.openwrt.org/t/wifi-regulatory-country-database/35775
