 can I obtain the latest in the 5.110.21.xx branch? I'll check the
 behaviour there.
 I don't think we have released anything after 5.110.21.p21, and I don't
 see any changes for channel setting. Ideally 5.110.21.p21 should work.

 During mesh start/stop design we came up with expected RF channel
 behaviour based on the then libertas driver --my apologies for not able to
 recall exact version.
 The idea was to handle all possible network services (ad-hoc/infra/mesh)
 and their transitions in a reliable manner. To make firmware
 predictable/simple we decided to disallow channel change if there is some
 network service running on the existing channel.
