cfg80211: fix locking for SIWFREQ



"cfg80211: validate channel settings across interfaces"
contained a locking bug -- in the managed-mode SIWFREQ
call it would end up running into a lock recursion.

This fixes it by not checking that particular interface
for a channel that it needs to stay on, which is as it
should be as that's the interface we're setting the
channel for.
