Yes, been there, seen that...
Mauricio is correct -- this was something that was in older Android
codebases (e.g
https://github.com/dstmath/HWFramework/blob/42239b1b3bbbd7d208932b8ca0f01fe911ec37bd/Honor5C-7.0/src/main/java/com/android/server/wifi/HwWifiStateMachine.java).
I'd looked into this a few months back, and spoken with some of the Android
developers, and it had already been factored out of the codebase...

-- 
I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad idea in
the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair of
pants.
