ath10k-ct: limit available channels via DT

This backports upstream commit

34d5629 ath10k: limit available channels via DT ieee80211-freq-limit

to the 4.19 ath10k-ct version. Without this patch, disabled channels
are still listed as a supported configuration for the radio.

The identical patch was also backported by OpenWRT to the non-ct driver.
It can be dropped as soon as we switch to an ath10k-ct version based on
4.20 or higher.

Subject: [PATCH] ath10k: Limit available channels via DT ieee80211-freq-limit

Tri-band devices (1x 2.4GHz + 2x 5GHz) often incorporate special filters in
the RX and TX path. These filtered channel can in theory still be used by
the hardware but the signal strength is reduced so much that it makes no
sense.

There is already a DT property to limit the available channels but ath10k
has to manually call this functionality to limit the currrently set wiphy
channels further.
