Channel active/busy time are showing incorrect
(less than previous or sometimes zero) for
successive survey dump command.

example:
Survey data from wlan0
        frequency:                      5180 MHz [in use]
        channel active time:            54995 ms
        channel busy time:              432 ms
        channel receive time:           0 ms
        channel transmit time:          59 ms
Survey data from wlan0
        frequency:                      5180 MHz [in use]
        channel active time:            32592 ms
        channel busy time:              254 ms
        channel receive time:           0 ms
        channel transmit time:          0 ms

This patch fix this issue by assigning 'wmi_bss_survey_req_type'
as 'WMI_BSS_SURVEY_REQ_TYPE_READ'.

Firmware ver 10.4-3.4-00082
Hardware QCA4019

Does the firmware read the registers directly, or does it accumulate the
results in a way that can't overflow?
If you don't clear the counters on reset, the overflow will be
problematic for the current-channel stats.
I think a better approach would be to use READ_CLEAR for in-use channels
and store the sum inside the driver.

I just bumped into this at work. I'm thinking of teaching mac80211
about optionally summing things so each driver doesn't need another
per-channel array.

We could possibly even do that in cfg80211, I guess.
