+ * Returns -EALREADY if *a regulatory domain* has already been set. Note that
+ * this could be by another driver. It is safe for drivers to continue if
+ * -EALREADY is returned, if drivers are not capable of world roaming they
+ * should not register more channels than they support. Right now we only
+ * support listening to the first driver hint. If the driver is capable
+ * of world roaming but wants to respect its own EEPROM mappings for
+ * specific regulatory domains it should register the @reg_notifier callback
+ * on the &struct wiphy. Returns 0 if the hint went through fine or through an
