the only thing the host has control over is AFH channel map, and even
modifying that is not really needed. The Bluetooth controller will do
AFH automatically and it is on by default. We never switch that off
actually.

Normally the co-ex stuff is hard-wired between the Bluetooth and WiFi
and thus out of control to the host OS.

Regards

Marcel
