I think that all of us understand limitations of one physical hardware
interface. Still other wifi stack don't disable all interfaces if one

I would expect that if I set wifi to channel 8 (option channel '8')
that then both AP and STA wifi interfaces use that channel, and it is
know to both of them. If upstream AP for STA is not on channel 8 or
becomes out of range then AP interface still works.
