Netgear R8000 is a tri-band home router. It has three BCM43602 chipsets
two of them for 5 GHz band. Both seem the same and their firmwares
report the same set of channels. The problem is due to hardware / board
design there are extra limitations that should be respected.

First PHY should be used for U-NII-2 and U-NII-3. Third PHY should be
used for U-NII-1. Using them in a different way may result in wireless
not working or in noticeably reduced performance. Basic version of this
info was provided by Broadcom employee, then it has been verified by me
using original vendor firmware (which has limitations hardcoded in UI).

This patch uses recently introduced ieee80211-freq-limit property to
describe these limitations at DT level.

Referencing PCIe devices in DT required specifying all related bridges.
Below you can see (a bit complex) PCI tree from R8000 that explains all
entries that I needed to put in DT.
