The following is what I remember from looking at the driver code and may not 
be totally accurate.

If I didn't overlook anything Zydas hardcoded this bitmask in it's latest 
driver. (presumably to solve problems with devices that don't set it 
properly) It used to be retrieved from EEPROM.
If I remember correctly each bit represents a channel and the bitmask is split 
up as follows:
000107ff => 0001 (default channel) 07ff (available/allowed channels)

The first log entry represents the retrieved (but now hardcoded) allowed 
channel mask. The second entry has the default channel added.

48 is the region code as defined by the official IEEE802.11 specs. If I 
remember correctly it stand for ETSI (most of Europe) / Taiwan region.
