I don't know anything about it, but will take a guess anyway :)

WPS was originally named WiFi Simple Config (WSC). So in this context, I
would guess this is a control for PBC. If so, you are probably supposed
to write to it, not read from it. Something like "echo 1 >
/proc/sys/dev/wifi0/wsc_button" to start push button config. But again,
this is just a guess.
