This looks reasonable, but could you please re-submit this after
matching functionality gets added to wireless-testing.git? If this basic
part of only providing SSID gets implemented (i.e., no Probe Response
template), we will also need to have a driver capability indicating that
the driver will be generating its own Probe Response frames so that we
can disable functionality that needs special Probe Request processing
support like P2P and WPS.
