so I looked into this right now. And the introspection data contains the
property while we are not returning it in GetAll or in the properties
included in the BSSAdded signal.

This behavior is fully consistent to what we had before. I prefer it
this way, but this means we have to NOT include these properties in the
introspection data.

It is not really that important since nobody is really using the
property list from the introspection data (except d-feet), but it might
be nice to get this fixed.
